6 Film Nonprofits to Support in New England
Here's a film charity for each state: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont
How about spreading some holiday joy (and much-needed money) to these six local film nonprofits? We’ve chosen one for each New England state.
Of course, there are so many important causes to consider, but those of us who live and work in the arts know how important (and often how difficult) it can be to make ends meet. So this year, consider making a donation (any amount) to one of the local film-related charities listed here.
