Shreveport's Downtown Development Authority announced a $30,000 challenge grant for Robinson Film Center on Dec. 16 to support RFC's year-end fundraising goal (click here to see DDA Executive Director Liz Swaine's announcement). Every dollar donated by RFC supporters will be matched by DDA up to $30,000 between now and Dec. 31. Amazingly, since Dec. 16 supporters have donated $25,090 that will be matched by DDA!

This means there is $4,910 left in matching dollars, and they expire Dec. 31. Now is great time to effectively double your donation! Click here to purchase gift memberships or make a gift, or call us at 318.459.4122.

Robinson Film Center thanks DDA and also the Downtown Shreveport Development Corporation, which contributed $12,500 this week for building improvements. The staff and board are grateful for this amazing support!
