There are many ways to donate to Northeast Historic Film. Financial contributions are extremely important.  We also rely on your donations of film, equipment, and ephemera to expand our collections.  Each type of donation, financial or otherwise, makes a difference in keeping NHF a vibrant organization dedicated to the history and heritage of northern New England.


Financial Donors

Financial donors are critical to keeping the organization healthy. Every contribution makes a difference and will help to:

  • Conserve and enhance our collections.
  • Support special presentations of materials in our archives.
  • Expand our public programs and community outreach efforts.
  • Provide programming in the Alamo Theatre.

Giving options:

  • The Annual Fund is a way to provide general operating support.
  • Gifts to the endowment ensure the safekeeping of materials in the conservation center.
  • Planned giving and bequests are useful tools for estate planning and can be established to benefit both you and NHF.

    Gifts to NHF are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Consult your tax advisor for details on charitable giving and your taxes.

    Film Donors

    Film donors add to the collections and enrich the variety of material available.

    Northeast Historic Film's moving image collections capture regional life in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont.  We hold local television material from the 1950s to the 1990s, industrial films, silent dramas, and independent works.  We're particularly interested in amateur film and home movies.

    Technology and Ephemera Donors

    Technology and Ephemera donors add to the study center and exhibits through donations of cameras, projectors, postcards, posters,  periodicals, and other items.

    Northeast Historic Film collects moving-image technology such as projectors, cameras, and editing equipment. This equipment helps to provide an overall picture of the filmmaking process, with a strong emphasis on amateur filmmaking.

    If you would like additional information on donating film, ephemera, or equipment please contact
