For more than 28 years Marie Dressler Foundation has promoted the love of film through Vintage Film Festival, and more recently, funding student bursaries and by creating a public museum in honour of Marie Dressler. This continues to be possible only with the generous support of our loyal patrons, donors, sponsors and volunteers.

The continued health and safety of our patrons and volunteers at our events is our first priority.  With this in mind, given the inherent risk of the COVID-19 pandemic to our patrons and volunteers, we cancelled our charitable fundraising events for 2020. Unfortunately, this leaves the Foundation without any earned income in 2020 to meet ongoing core expenses, such as insurance and utilities.

Your financial assistance now will help us to be there for you in 2021 and later. Now, more than ever, we need your continuing financial support! Please donate what you can.
