*"THE REGION'S PREMIER FILM EVENT" Carla Meyer - Sacramento Bee*


*THE SACRAMENTO FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL NEEDS YOU !*

Chers Amis,

The 16th Sacramento French Film Festival opens in less than 2 months. We
are busy selecting a spectacular program of films to be shown at the Crest
Theatre and the Esquire IMAX Theatre, June 16-25, 2017.

*And we need you more than ever ! *
The costs of booking films and renting our venues (to name only our two
most essential expenses) increase every year and our tickets sales cover
only about half of our operating costs. The Sacramento French Film Festival
remains dependent on support from our sponsors to bring the highest-quality
films to Sacramento while keeping event pricing affordable to a wide
audience.
You may have planned to contribute to the SFFF during the upcoming Big Day
of Giving (Big DoG) on May 4. We have participated in this annual event
since it began, and in the past we have encouraged donation to us through
the Big DoG website. However,
*please note that we decided to not participate in the Big Day of Giving
this year. *As you may remember, the event website encountered technical
difficulties last year that resulted in a lot of scrambling to accept
donations that day. Coupled with the fact that there are relatively high
fees (from our financial perspective) to participate in the event, and that
the Big DoG won't include any matching funds at all this year, our Board of
Directors decided we would sit this year out and see how we do on our own. We,
of course remain supportive of the Big Day of Giving concept and will
possibly reconsider our participation after this year. We encourage you to
donate to your other favorite non-profits that are participating this year.
But we wanted to let you know that you will not find us on the Big Day of
Giving website this year.


*Please help us have our very own successful day of givingby donating
directly to us by May 4. *
*100% of your donation will benefit the SFFF!*

You can find our new sponsoring levels in the document attached. You can
choose to make a fully tax-deductible donation to our organization, or
receive great benefits (see sponsoring package enclosed). Any gift, in any
amount, is greatly appreciated. You can donate online or send us a check.

DONATIONS by MAIL

Another way you can help the SFFF is to *inquire if your employer has a
“matching program”* and would match your contribution to us. We have been
successfully working with some of you on this over the past few years.

*If you think the Sacramento French Film Festival’s mission is one to be
supported – if you have enjoyed our films, discussions, and guests – please
give back today. MERCI !*

*We couldn't do it without  you. And that's the truth!*

We look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,

The SFFF Team
