The Institute for Cinema Ephemera is new. Founded on October 31, 2016, we received our 501(c)3 tax-exempt status on November 29, 2016. I know, that’s a record! My last non-profit was the Emerald Bayou Foundation and it took almost a year for the IRS to validate.
Right off the bat, we were blessed with the donation of about 188,800 pieces of movie paper and memorabilia. December was quite a month as we acknowledged donations, set up the website, and more.
In another major development, we are delighted to join some of the most important icons in the field by becoming a sponsor of LAMP, LearnAboutMoviePosters.com.
Can’t wait to see what 2017 brings!
