The Resch Family Fund’s “You’ve Got Friends” 40 Fundraising Champions Challenge

COUNTDOWN TO THE GREAT GIVE® MARATHON!

While advance giving began on April 6, the heart of The Great Give® begins in earnest this Tuesday, May 5, at 8 AM. The 36-hour online fundraising marathon—coordinated by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven to support hundreds of area non-profits—continues through Wednesday, May 6, at 8 PM.

The Great Give® is Best Video Film & Cultural Center’s most important fundraiser of the year and, with the loss of income due to our temporary, pandemic-mandated closure, it take on even more importance in 2020.

What are some ways you can maximize the impact of your best gift to BVFCC in The Great Give®?

ACCEPT THE RESCH FAMILY FUND CHALLENGE TO BE A “FUNDRAISING CHAMPION” FOR BEST VIDEO!

The Resch Family will make a matching donation of $2,000 if 40 (or more) Fundraising Champions each raise $200 before 8pm on Wednesday May 6th. Reaching that goal enhances our chances of winning up to $5,000 in additional prize money for Best Video. Are you up for the challenge?

Become a Fundraising Champion by clicking the “Fundraising” button (see photo) on the Best Video Film and Cultural Center Great Give page or make a donation via a BVFCC Fundraising Champion who you know.

If becoming a fundraiser is a stretch for you or outside your comfort zone, there is another way you can raise the impact of any donation you might make—by going through the list of “fundraising champions” on the right side of our Great Give® page and donating through the page of one who hasn’t yet reached the $200 benchmark.

ARE YOU AN EARLY BIRD?

GENEROUS DONORS ARE CONTRIBUTING MATCHING FUNDS UP TO $500 IF YOU DONATE BETWEEN 8 and 9 AM ON MAY 5 & 6!

Want to make your donation go even farther? Of course you do!

Make your donation through one of our “Fundraising Champions” (see information above) between 8 and 9 AM on Tuesday, May 5, or Wednesday, May 6. The more donations we get during those time frames, the better our chance of winning an additional $1,000 prize.

The Rabbi Herb & Elin Brockman May 5 Early Bird Match Challenge:

Best Video Film & Cultural Center is the appreciative beneficiary of a $500 match from Rabbi Herb and Elin Brockman. The Brockmans will match up to $50 of every donation up to $500 for the hour of 8-9 AM on May 5. Make your donation dollars go farther by donating during the Early Bird time frame on May 5th!

The May 6 Early Bird Match Challenge:

The Great Give®—an annual 36-hour online fundraising marathon coordinated by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven in the first week of May—is Best Video Film & Cultural Center’s most important fundraiser. Given the ongoing expenses we are incurring (rent, utilities, insurance, etc.) while having much of our daily income stream cut off, The Great Give® is more important than ever this year.

• GREAT GIVE RUNS MAY 5-6 BUT ADVANCE GIVING HAS ALREADY BEGUN

The Great Give® runs from May 5-May 6, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.. Advance giving for The Great Give® began April 6, 2020. We recognize times are difficult for many people—your best gift can to help us continue to bring film, music, and people together.

We need your help! Please join our campaign and help us raise the money necessary to continue—and expand—our programming and preserve—and expand!—our incredible film archive! We need you to tell your friends and family members about the value we have for the community and ask them to join us in helping to make a difference.

• CAN YOU PLEDGE TO GIVE?

Our intention—before we had to temporarily close our premises—had been to collect names, email address, and cell numbers on a pledge sign-up sheet so we could text supporters when the event was under way. If you want to pledge to donate—you needn’t say how much although it does have to be $5 or more—you can email us your info at info [AT] bestvideo.com. Put “pledge” in the subject line.

• HELP US AS A PEER-TO-PEER FUNDRAISER

Donating is great! But if you want to help us even more, become one of our fundraisers and let your friends and family know how important you feel Best Video is to you and the community. The more fundraisers we have, the better our chance of winning additional thousands of dollars in prize money.

Just go to our Great Give® page and click the “Fundraise” button right next to the “Donate” button. It will ask for your name, email address, and to create a password. When you press “Submit,” you have created YOUR page, which you can share on social media and emails.

It’s fun! It’s competitive! Rally your friends and family to support a local cultural icon.

Although it isn’t necessary, you can customize your page by clicking on “Toolkit” on your fundraiser page. At the top of your “Toolkit” is an option to “Tell your story.” Opening that allows you to put in a picture of yourself, personalize the text on your fundraising page, and put in an image that relates to the reasons why you support Best Video. (If you need help customizing your page, contact us at info [AT] bestvideo.com.)

Best Video Oscars Happy Hour party Sun., Feb. 9, 4-6 PM

Best Video Film & Cultural Center always marks Oscars Sunday with a party/fundraiser and this year is no different. Unlike the two previous years, rather than having an Oscars brunch, we will host a 4-6 PM Happy Hour to lead into the streaming of Oscars programming at 6:30, which will be hosted by staffer Rob Harmon.

The Happy Hour will feature drink specials, a delicious spread of snacks, an Oscar Ballot contest and prizes, and a short Oscars trivia contest presided over by Rob and Kate Bellmore, who also host our monthly movie trivia night.

All are welcome. There is no set entry fee but we welcome donations of $5-25 to support our year-round programming. Oscar ballots are $5 and we will be available to purchase at BVFCC in advance of the event starting tonight.

Support Paint Hamden Pink fight against breast cancer through purchases at Best Video cafe Fri., Oct. 4

Come visit Best Video Film & Cultural Center anytime on Oct. 4 and for every cafe purchase, they will donate 10% of the sales to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer as part of Paint Hamden Pink.

Paint Hamden Pink’s statement:

Breast cancer is a cause that is personal to so many people at our company. That’s why we’re joining the nation’s largest network of breast cancer events – the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. We’ll raise money and awareness and together we can continue to save lives.

The American Cancer Society is an important resource for women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer. We owe it to those women to support the organization that does more than any other for them by funding innovative research and providing free information and services.

We are proud to be participating in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and thrilled about the difference that our associates and their families are making to save lives from breast cancer.

Music: Stand Up for Steve—Benefit for Steve Rodgers Sun., Apr. 15, 3-10 PM

Best Video Performance Space is proud to be hosting a benefit for Steve Rodgers, former owner of The Space, The Outer Space and The Ballroom. The event—which feature a diverse lineup of nine musical acts—will be held this Sunday, Apr. 15, from 3-10 PM. Suggested donation is $10 – give what you can! A parallel event will also be held at Toad’s Place; paying the donation can get you into both events.

Steve Rodgers has been a pivotal figure in the greater New Haven music scene since his days in the 1990s leading the group Mighty Purple with his brother Jonny. As proprietor of the all-ages The Space—and, more recently also The Outer Space and The Ballroom—Steve has worked day and night to provide a welcoming venue for local music in an array of genres.

But Steve’s efforts have come at some cost to himself, both in terms of debt and a toll on his personal health. Now that he has ceded ownership of the venues, members of the local music community are coming together to raise funds to help out Steve in this time of transition.

Despite the fact that Steve could have seen the creation of Best Video Performance Space as a rival, he was nothing but supportive of our efforts. Steve went so far as to lend us—at no charge—a PA mixer when our first one went on the fritz. We are honored to be able to help out.

This is the lineup:

3-3:30 Anne Marie Menta

3:45-4:15 The Nick DiMaria Quartet

4:30-5 Olive Tiger (solo)

5:15-5:45 The Sharp Flats

BVFCC Second Anniversary Gala scheduled for Sat., Nov. 18, tix available; gala is free to any who donated more than $100 in 2017

Please join us on Saturday, November 18, 2017, from 7-10 PM, in celebration of the second anniversary of Best Video Film and Cultural Center (BVFCC), a non-profit created to preserve Best Video’s rich archive and explore new ways to bring people, film, and music together. The celebration will take place at The Ballroom at The Outer Space in Hamden.

Tickets are $25 but please consider making a donation over and above that amount. Supporters who donate over $100 — or have donated over $100 this year — will receive complementary admission to the show. Donations in excess of the value of admission are tax-deductible as allowed by law. You can purchase tickets online here.

BVFCC was officially recognized as a tax-deductible non-profit by the IRS in 2016.

We have increased our programming with over 120 music events; more film screenings with larger turnouts and great discussions; more lectures on films by Yale Prof. Mark Schenker; and increased use of the Performance Space by community groups.

We organized a film festival — BestFest Student Films, which had its initial event on Dec. 10, 2016 — to showcase the work of local high school students. In addition, educators and filmmakers involved in the organizing of BestFest Student Films offered several free filmmaking workshops for students.

A lineup of superb local artists have offered to donate their talent for this event: bluegrass group Five in the Chamber, klezmer big band Nu Haven Kapelye, indie rock chamber group Olive Tiger, and the string quartet rock band The Tet Offensive. We will also be showing locally made short films between musical acts.

Steve Rodgers, owner of The Space and The Outer Space, has generously donated use of The Ballroom for our gala event.

About BVFCC

Best Video Film and Cultural Center (“BVFCC”) was created to preserve Best Video’s rich archive and explore new ways to bring people, film, and music together. On November 1, 2016, BVFCC took over BEST VIDEO, a valued community space serving Greater New Haven with its world class film archive, performance space and coffee bar.

The entire film archive — one of the finest such collections in the country — remains in place and continues to grow with additions of more foreign and domestic films, documentaries, and television series. In addition, the music events, film screenings and other presentations in the performance space have been expanded to reach a broader community audience.

New Membership Options

Our goal is to bring good movies and good people together. For customers who like the way we do that now, nothing will change. For just a few dollars, you will still be able to rent any movie in our archive. However, we now offer new membership formats that we believe better serve BEST VIDEO’s diverse customers and provide more value and simpler access to our expansive archive and our music and film events.

Our Success Depends on You

We invite the support of every member of the BEST VIDEO family. If you are unable to make it to the concert, please consider making a donation. All amounts are greatly appreciated. We look forward to the participation of all of our existing members and are excited to welcome new members to our family as we continue in our efforts to enrich the cultural wealth of the greater New Haven region.

BVFCC Appeal an ongoing success—over $30,000 raised!

Dear Friends,

Wow.

We are humbled and grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support and love—there really is no other word for it—that we have received from the community since we made our appeal for donations and memberships.

The “official” campaign, as defined by the Facebook event we created, lasted through last Tuesday, August 29. But we continue to get new households joining up for our monthly or annual membership plans.

As of mid-day Monday, September 4, we have raised over $30,000 through donations and supporters signing up for new memberships or upgrading the plans they already have. We have added almost 100 new members.

If you haven’t already joined one of the plans but would like to, you can do so at this link or in person at Best Video Film & Cultural Center.

If you would like to donate, you can do so at this link or in person at Best Video Film & Cultural Center.

We are deeply grateful and humbled by the community’s support.

Thank you!

Appeal: Community support needed for Best Video Film & Cultural Center

Dear Friends:

Without a groundswell of support, Best Video faces the very real threat of having to shut our doors.

What happens in the very near future will determine whether Best Video Film and Cultural Center will close, will limp along, or will soar.

• If you are not already a member, become a member today by signing up online or coming into our space. Programming director Hank Hoffman suggests a target of 200 additional members over the next few months in order to have enough recurring revenue to cover our current operating expenses.

Make a donation online (or in person). General manager Richard Brown says raising $20,000 would catch us up with bills currently owed to vendors. Even better, BVFCC Board of Directors President David Margolis points out that raising $50,000 would enable us to also pay off the remaining debt to Best Video founder Hank Paper and establish a financial cushion that would facilitate expanded community programming and improvements to the physical space.

After more than a year-and-a-half of operation, BVFCC is proud of the community support that has carried us this far. We have already raised over $35,000 in donations in the fiscal year beginning October 2016. Of particular note as a marker of the value the community places on Best Video, is this year’s performance in The Great Give, the May online charity marathon organized by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. Out of some 500 worthy nonprofits, BVFCC finished in the Top 10 in number of individual donors and in the Top 25 in total contributions.

Unfortunately, despite our successes, when it comes to bringing in enough income to cover our expenses and pay off our debts, we are falling short. We have a 2nd Anniversary Gala celebration planned for November. We had hoped to get to that event without calling on the public but a slower than expected summer necessitates this appeal.

The average monthly operational income shortfall that donations need to make up is approximately $4,700; in the past ten months, we have been averaging about $3,500 in donations. Good but not quite enough. ($2,000 of that $4,700 per month is remaining debt for the purchase of the assets; that obligation is fulfilled by June of next year.)

Presenting programming to delight and educate the community. Dr. Caterwaul’s Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps playing music from “The Simpsons” TV show to a sold-out crowd this past July.

When we opened as a nonprofit in November 2015, we knew that the traditional video rental model was not viable. For several years leading up to Hank Paper’s sale of Best Video’s assets to BVFCC, rental income was decreasing by 20% a year. Anticipating that the trend would continue, we started offering annual membership plans. With membership plans starting at $10 per month, we projected that if we can reach 700-1,000 members by the end of the third year, we would be able to replace the rental income with membership revenue.

The good news is that almost 370 households have signed up for one of the three membership plans. The bad news is that—for BVFCC not to run into recurrent cash flow crises and, ultimately, face the awful decision to close—we need 200-500 more member households.

We know that we can make that happen. Approximately 5,000 households support Best Video each year by renting videos, purchasing items at our cafe, or attending our events. If just one in five sign up for a membership plan, then we will reach our goal. If just one in ten make a donation of $100 or more, then we will exceed our goal of raising an additional $50,000 this year. Many hands…

If BVFCC were just a “video store,” we would have closed years ago. And perhaps deservedly so. But BVFCC is much more than that. It is a community gathering place, a performance venue, a film screening room, a national-level archive of the history of cinema, and a safe place for neighborhood children to come and hang out after school. It is a place where people, film, and music come together.

BVFCC exists bring people, film, and music together.Pre-Oscars Brunch this past February.

When you are a member of Best Video Film & Cultural Center—whether you pay on a recurring monthly basis or get a 10% discount by paying annually—BVFCC becomes your library of film. Depending on your level of membership, you get free admission to from 1-4 shows per month. Most importantly, you are part of a community dedicated to keeping BVFCC as an essential part of the cultural wealth of the greater New Haven area.

Very Truly Yours,
