If you would like to donate to the film festival through the United Way, our official non-profit organization information should be listed as follows:

Out Film CT, Inc.
P.O. Box 231191

Your donations through the United Way will be applied towards a Friend of the Festival membership (see above). Please complete the Friend of the Festival sign-up form and write on the form the name of your employer and the amount you donated through the United Way. The Friend of the Festival sign-up form should be returned to us at the address on the form, not to the United Way or your employer.
