Welcome to the Mary Pickford Foundation’s online research center and clearinghouse.

This website is our virtual office and a key element in fostering the Foundation’s mission to further Mary Pickford’s commitment to her craft, her community and her philanthropy while inspiring future generations of women and filmmakers.
