Disaster Relief Fund for SAG-AFTRA Members

If you need help, ask. If you can help, give.

The Foundation and the SAG-AFTRA Motion Picture Players Welfare Fund (MPPWF) have 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 the California wildfires or the Alaska earthquake

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 intakela@actorsfund.org

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.

Harrison Ford supports SAG-AFTRA members impacted by the California wildfires.  Please watch and give to the Disaster Relief Fund.

Actor and environmentalist, Harrison Ford steps up to support his fellow SAG-AFTRA sisters and brothers who have been impacted by the devastating California wildfires. As Harrison says, “We’re not just actors, voiceover artists, broadcasters, and recording artists — we’re family. And family sticks together.”

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.


The SAG-AFTRA Foundation has been recognized among U.S. nonprofits, by both Guidestar and Charity Navigator, for its commitment to accountability and transparency.
