We have partnered with the Screen Actors Guild Motion Picture Players Welfare Fund (SAG MPPWF) and the AFTRA Foundation to create a Superstorm Sandy Emergency Assistance Fund specifically to provide financial support grants to active SAG-AFTRA members affected by the recent hurricane.  Collectively we have provided an initial amount of $250,000 for our assistance pool. The Actors Fund is partnering with us, SAG MPPWF and the AFTRA Foundation in this much-needed effort and will provide the social services and coordinate the grant reviews and approvals.   For a detailed description of this fund, go to www.sagfoundation.org.
 
“This was a devastating crisis and people throughout the area are having a very tough time,” said actor and SAG Foundation Board Member Ron Perlman.  “That’s why we’re here – to lend a helping hand to SAG-AFTRA members in their time of need. Actors, broadcasters, sound recording artists are all eligible to apply and I look forward to getting help to everyone in need.”
 
Members in need can apply by contacting The Actors Fund intake services at:  Eastern Region 212.221.7300 ext. 119 or intakeny@actorsfund.org.
 
The SAG Foundation is accepting donations directed to the Superstorm Sandy Emergency Assistance Fund from individuals and corporate donors who may wish to help provide relief to hard-hit SAG-AFTRA members in the affected areas. Contributions may be made by clicking the DONATE NOW button at www.sagfoundation.org.
