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 three ways:

1. Direct deposit your small-dollar residuals to the Foundation.

Automatically donate your small-dollar residuals to the Foundation. With direct deposit, you can set a threshold to donate residuals below a certain amount. These residuals will automatically go to the Foundation as a tax-deductible donation; any residuals amounts you receive over the threshold will be securely deposited into your personal bank account.

To donate residuals, you will need to be signed up for SAG-AFTRA direct deposit.

2. 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 PH1
Los Angeles, CA 90036

3. 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 SAG-AFTRA:

SAG-AFTRA
5757 Wilshire Blvd. 7th Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90036

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 SAG-AFTRA:

SAG-AFTRA
5757 Wilshire Blvd. 7th Floor
