Donations to the found-film site

It might be possible that you have discovered the found-film site via google1 because you have a quantity of old colour slides or negatives that you want to dispose of, and you don’t like the idea of just throwing them away.

If that is the case, please consider donating your slides to the Found Film project. I’d be happy to pay postage to receive the slides or negatives, but please get in touch with me via email2 to let me know the quantity of slides you have. I have limited storage, so I can’t always take a very large number of slides.

I wanted to explain what happens to slides that are donated to be completely honest with anyone who donates.

Because I have limited storage space, I keep and store any slides which are donated and are published on the site. I also try to store any which are not published, but in some cases, when there are multiple views of the same subject for example, in order to maintain my storage space, I need to sell the surplus slides. As you can imagine, storing up to 100,000 slides is not a zero space action.

Any money made from the sale of slides is used to offset the cost of hosting the site, which at the moment is approx £25 per month.
