The Denver Actors Fund, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in June 2013, is a modest source of immediate relief when members of the Denver theater community find themselves in situational medical need. The Denver Actors Fund offers both financial and volunteer assistance. To date, The Fund has distributed about $62,000 to help recipients with medical/dental bills, insurance, co-payments, supplies and more. Action teams - an army of more than 60 volunteers - run errands, provide rides, meals, child care, construction, pet-sitting, personal company and more. To date, volunteers have donated more than 400 hours of service, delivered nearly 50 meals and 20 bags of groceries.
