Support

In an effort to bring first-run cutting-edge films of critical acclaim to Westport, WCI needs the financial support of individuals and corporations.

Through the generous support of our individual angels and business sponsors and supporters we have been able to ensure our financial viability for the first 18 months of our existence.

As we continue to search for a permanent site for our theater we will look to the continuing generosity of the individuals, businesses, and corporate community at the angel level of $1,000.

Donations will be recorded with a 501(c)3 form for tax purposes and donors will be recognized in screenings. Donations may be sent to Westport Cinema Initiative c/o Sandy Lefkowitz.

The Westport Cinema Initiative is a member-supported, nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.

Your gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent possible.
