The Actors Fund
The performing arts industry has been turned upside down by the
COVID-19 pandemic, but you have provided an urgently needed support
system to actors, singers, dancers, stage managers and other
professionals who have fallen on hard times. When members of our
community have nowhere else to turn, they know they can rely on The
Actors Fund-and on you.
We are counting on your support for our 2021 Annual Fund Drive today.
Please make a gift now to help provide a vital safety net for
performing arts and entertainment professionals in need.

Thanks to your generosity, we have:
* Served over 36,000 clients across all programs and services
nationwide and provided more than $19.3 million in emergency
financial assistance to over 15,000 individuals in response to
requests for assistance due to COVID-19. This is more than nine
times the amount usually distributed in a regular year!
* Successfully and safely completed a $10 million renovation of
The Palm View residence in West Hollywood. All residents are
people living with disabilities and/or HIV/AIDS, including many
seniors. The residence remained COVID-19 free and the
modernization of the units and common spaces has resulted in a
more efficient and enjoyable facility.
* Launched our Every Artist Insured initiative and helped nearly
2,000 entertainment industry professionals access and use the
health benefits they are entitled to through the Artists Health
Insurance Resource Center and Entertainment Health Insurance
The Actors Fund is working hard to expand our outreach nationally
while also being responsive to new and unexpected challenges as they
arise for those in need. We know that life in this industry is
unpredictable, paychecks don't always cover the bills and even
very successful careers can quickly be derailed by illness, injury and
the ongoing national pandemic.
Your gift towards our 2021 Annual Fund Drive will help The Actors Fund
fulfill our promise to provide help whenever our community needs us.
