Dear Silent Hall of Fame Users:

    You have come to this website, because you like silent films and silent movie stars.  There are many places like this.  But unlike other sites, here at Silent Hall of Fame you can make a real difference.  You can help us show for the first time many films featuring your favorite silent stars that have not been seen in generations.  This will bring their names back into the public discourse.  But you can do much more than that: you can help your favorite silent stars receive belated recognition and glory.

    Until now there has never been an organization with the purpose to place a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for movie personalities from a century ago.  Silent Hall of Fame is this historic organization.  Silent Hall of Fame is the only organization of its kind.  We will make history and we invite you to become a part of history by sponsoring a silent movie star for the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  All contributions are tax deductible.

   Please use this button for a one-time donation. Use the button on the right-hand side for a recurring donation.

Dear Silent Hall of Fame users,

    Silent Hall of Fame invites all classic film lovers to see our award-winning documentary.
    The purpose of the film is to let the public know about Silent Hall of Fame and its efforts to restore the legacy and bring belated recognition to distinguished silent film personalities who have not been rewarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
    We envision this film as the initial step that will bring the mission of Silent Hall of Fame to a broader audience and gain more supporters. We intend to create a feature biographical documentary in the near future, as soon as the necessary funds become available.
    You can become a part of this effort by making a tax-deductible contribution to help your favorite silent star receive belated recognition and glory.

 

Here is a very efficient way to help Silent Hall of Fame:

Many major employers have programs that match their employees' donations to charitable organizations like Silent Hall of Fame. Such employers are big banks like Bank of America and US Bank, and large companies such as Chevron, Microsoft, etc. If you work for one of these employers and you donate to Silent Hall of Fame your tax-deductible contribution will be doubled and will go a long way towards helping your favorite silent star to receive better public recognition. Here is a list of Companies that Match Donations and/or Volunteer Hours.

 

Here are two easy ways to help Silent Hall of Fame at no cost to you.


1/ If you buy stuff at Amazon you can help us at no cost to you. Amazon has set up a charitable foundation called AmazonSmile, which will donate to Silent Hall of Fame an amount equal to 0.5% of the purchase price that you pay. When you register please select Silent Hall of Fame as the charitable organization that you want to support.

2/ eBay has a program called Giving Works.  If you sell or buy stuff on eBay you can use it to raise funds for Silent Hall of Fame. Again, please select Silent Hall of Fame as the charitable organization that you want to support.

INFORMATION ABOUT FILMS KEPT IN ARCHIVES IN THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD

    As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the legacy of our stars we seek to recover their rare films from dusty archives in the USA and round the world.
