Residuals Donation

A Residuals Donation offers SAG-AFTRA members a means of lending support to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation on an ongoing basis through funds derived from the artist’s work as a performer. Residuals donations directly support the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s programs and are tax deductible to the full extent allowable by law.

How it works – Living Performers

A living performer has the option of donating in one of two ways:

1. Mail his/her residuals check(s) to the Foundation.

Please note that checks must be current and not have expired. There is no need to endorse each check. They can be sent to:

SAG-AFTRA Foundation
c/o Development Department
5757 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 124
Los Angeles, CA 90036

2. Deed all future residuals to the Foundation

The performer gives all of her/his future interest in the right to receive residuals derived from her/his services as a performer to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. He/she does this by completing a one-page Gift and Disclaimer of Interest in Performer Residuals Form to donate all of his/her future residuals. Please note: SAG-AFTRA performers are currently unable to donate a portion of their residuals. The completed and notarized form should be mailed to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation:

SAG-AFTRA Foundation
c/o Development Department
5757 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 124
Los Angeles, CA 90036

How it works – Deceased Performers

To donate all residuals on behalf of a deceased performer, the beneficiary can download and complete the one-page Gift and Disclaimer of Interest in Performer Residuals (on behalf of Deceased Performer) Form. The completed and notarized form should be mailed to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation:

SAG-AFTRA Foundation
