Hurricane 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 started a Hurricane Relief Fund to provide urgent financial support to SAG-AFTRA members and families affected by all of the recent storms and flooding. 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.

If you, or a SAG-AFTRA member you know, is facing hardship due to the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, or Maria, we are here to help in this difficult time.

SAG-AFTRA members are eligible to apply to the Hurricane Relief Fund if they are currently active and have paid their dues through April 30, 2017.

Affected and eligible members may apply by contacting the Actors Fund intake services directly:

For those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, please fill out the application for assistance at For questions, please contact The Actors Fund’s Los Angeles Office — (323) 933-9244, ext. 455 or

For those impacted by Hurricanes Irma, Jose and Maria, please fill out the application for assistance at For questions, please contact The Actors Fund’s New York City Office — (212) 221-7300 ext. 119 or

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 Hurricane 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.
