Do you have a functional film camera, film camera package or film stock you no longer use? Consider donating it to the The Film Photography Podcast. We will ensure your camera or film will find a great new home via our monthly show giveaways and other school donation programs providing cameras to students and others that have a need.

Your financial and / or product support ensures we can continue our regular programming and allows us to acquire the cameras, film and related items for our continued giveaways and workshop programs.

What We Do with Donated Gear?

Michael Raso is the owner and director of The Film Photography Project (FPP). Michael has been running the FPP since 2009, accepting donations of film and traditional film cameras. These cameras are refurbished and circulated to school and student programs world-wide at no cost to those organizations. The cameras are also given to film shooters via the FPP's radio show and at the FPP's annual free Walking Workshop. In the past FPP supplied hundreds of rolls of film and cameras to non-profit groups including GULF COAST ACADEMY, PASCACK VALLEY HS,  TULARE UNION HS,  PICTURING WANTEETE , BLUFFTON UNIVERSITY and the SCIO HIGH SCHOOL photography program. In 2016 we supplied the Pickerington HS with a fleet of cameras for their program. Your contribution keeps us funded and fueled!

Is my donation deductible?

Although we operate very much like a not-for-profit organization, we are not a registered NJ 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Due to our super small volunteer staff we do not send receipts. Rest assured, your donated gear will be put in the hands of film photography students of all ages! In advance, we thank you.

Your cash contributions are greatly needed and will enable us to continue producing The Film Photography Podcast, our on-line videos, operation of our free workshops and school donation programs. To donate funds to FPP send a check or money order to the address below or with paypal:
