Avalon Annual Fund
As DC’s only nonprofit film center, we rely on people like you for essential support that allows us to provide films and programming found nowhere else. However, ticket and concession sales only meet 85% of our operating costs. Your generous contribution to the Annual Fund will help maintain the Avalon Theatre as a vibrant and valued community resource.
In the past year, Annual Fund donations have supported programs like Film Studies, our new continuing education program for adults, Wednesday Signature Series, which brings unique films from around the world to the Avalon for single night screenings, and Cinema Classroom at the Avalon, a free program for middle and high school students that has drawn over 1900 students from public, private and charter schools.
Your continued support makes programs like these – found only at the Avalon – possible.
Your contributions also help to maintain our beautifully restored theater building, the oldest continually operating theater in Washington, DC.
Please help ensure that the Avalon continues to thrive as DC’s only nonprofit, community-focused film center.
