Support BVFCC on #GivingTuesday—matching funds make YOUR gift go farther!

november29_copy_webThanks to the generous support of key Best Video Film & Cultural Center members, we have raised $15,000 in matching funds as an incentive for others to pitch in!

A great time to show your support with a tax-deductible donation is this Tuesday, Nov. 29, Giving Tuesday. #GivingTuesday is held the first Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgving. Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Matching funds make your tax-deductible donation go farther. But they also are available to encourage BVFCC supporters who haven’t yet joined one of the new Movie Plans to do so. The plans, which are already being enjoyed by several hundred area families, allow members to pay a flat fee on either a monthly or annual basis rather than a charge per rental. Unlike the original Best Video rental plans, there are no late fees with the 1 Movie Plan ($10 per month, or $108 for a year), 2 Movie Plan ($20 per month, or $216 for a year) and 4 Movie Plans ($30 per month, or $324 for a year).

Of course, you can also make a donation and/or join one of the plans by coming down to BVFCC at 1842 Whitney Ave.

Thanks for your support!

Give the gift of a full year of rentals at Best Video Film & Cultural Center!

BVFCC_Gift_Certificate_WebWhat if you could give the gift of free rentals at Best Video Film & Cultural Center for a whole year?

Well, you can! This holiday season, give the One Movie Plan, Two Movie Plan or Four Movie Plan to those on your “nice” list.

Since we began offering them at the beginning of November, the new Membership Rental Plans have become very popular. BVFCC members on the new plans say they are renting more films. And even though it isn’t free, it feels free every time they come into BVFCC and get another movie without having to pull out their wallet.

Pay $120 for a full year (and get two extra months free) and  the recipient of your gift can have one movie from the expansive BVFCC collection out a time, exchanging them over and over again. For $240 for a full year (and get two extra months free!), the gift that keeps on giving would entitle the recipient to have out two movies at a time. For the fanatic cinephile, give them the Four Movie Plan for $360 for a year (and get two extra months free when you pay for the full year up front).

Come into Best Video Film & Cultural Center and buy a gift certificate for the movie rental gift that will keep on giving all year long!

These are the new options:

• The One Movie Plan*

$120/year (or $10 per month) Take out 1 movie at a time for four days—exchange as often as you want. Attend 1 show per month free. No late fees! For a limited time, if you opt for the annual payment, you get two additional free months if you purchase it in the store or 10% off the cost for12 months if you purchase online.

• The Two Movie Plan*

$240/year (or $20 per month) Take out 2 movies at a time for up to a week. Attend 2 shows per month free. No late fees! For a limited time, if you opt for the annual payment, you get two additional free months if you purchase it in the store or 10% off the cost for12 months if you purchase online.

If you choose not to sign up for one of the three plans, you can continue with your current plan or rent on a pay-as-you-go basis. Prices in the legacy plans and per movie are subject to change.
