It’s well known that becoming a SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) member comes with a whole lot of benefits.

The SAG-AFTRA Foundation and the MPPWF (Motion Picture Players Welfare Fund) have activated their Disaster Relief Fund for SAG-AFTRA members and families impacted by Hurricane and Tropical Storm Ida.

The SAG-AFTRA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the most comprehensive, educational and state-of-the-art resources to SAG-AFTRA members. The Foundation believes that the contributions made to our culture by performing artists are not only valuable, but essential.

The Foundation understands that artists live in a rapidly changing world, and it’s imperative that our actors, voiceover artists, broadcasters, dancers, and other artists understand the evolving industry landscape, are provided the tools necessary to navigate these changes successfully, and are given the opportunity to hone their craft as they continue through their careers.

We know there are ups and downs in the performing arts, and the Foundation is here for SAG-AFTRA members, in good times and bad. Through our assistance programs, we work to ensure that no performer is alone when times get tough.

We also offer opportunities for SAG-AFTRA members to make a difference through our children’s literacy program, Storyline Online, and contributing even further to spreading creative knowledge and inspiration while giving back to our communities.

That’s why the Foundation promotes education and giving back to our communities. We believe that by working together as performers, and with our partners throughout the entertainment industry, we can create a vibrant and progressive creative landscape where performers can discover inspirations and achieve new levels in a safe and supported environment.

Acting is about taking chances and leaping into the unknown, and the Foundation is dedicated to helping performers reach their highest heights while always landing firmly on their feet.

The SAG-AFTRA Foundation has been recognized among U.S. nonprofits, by both Guidestar and Charity Navigator, for its commitment to accountability and transparency. For donation purposes, the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Tax ID is: 95-3967876.
