Our Supporters

The support of individuals, organizations and companies helps MIRC fulfill its mission to preserve and share rare and historic films with students, researchers, historians and film scholars and buffs worldwide.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. You can make a donation to honor a loved one, sponsor a set of films within the collection, or contribute to a specific aspect of the project, such as funding student workers or the technology endowment.

We thank these sponsors for their generosity and commitment to protecting and providing access to the U.S. Marine Corps Film Repository.
