The Foundation and the SAG-AFTRA Motion Picture Players Welfare Fund (MPPWF) have started a Disaster Relief Fund to provide urgent financial support to SAG-AFTRA members and families affected by natural disasters. We are partnering with The Actors Fund to administer the relief efforts on the ground, ensuring all SAG-AFTRA members receive the help they need.
SAG-AFTRA members are eligible to apply to the Disaster Relief Fund if they are currently active and paid up on their dues.
For those impacted by Hurricanes Florence, Irma, Jose and Maria, please fill out the application for assistance at www.actorsfund.org/GetHelp. For questions, please contact The Actors Fund’s New York City Office — (212) 221-7300 ext. 119 or firstname.lastname@example.org
For those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, please fill out the application for assistance at www.actorsfund.org/GetHelp. For questions, please contact The Actors Fund’s Los Angeles Office — (323) 933-9244, ext. 455 or email@example.com
The process has been streamlined to speed relief, and consists of a quick, confidential and non-invasive application and consultation to establish need. During the consultation, the social services professionals will also assess each applicant’s need for additional assistance, programs or services.
In times like these, we are not just SAG-AFTRA members, we are family.
The SAG-AFTRA Foundation is currently taking donations for the Disaster Relief Fund. Every donation counts, big or small, and 100% of your donation will provide relief to hard-hit SAG-AFTRA members in the affected regions.
