SAG Foundation partners on Sandy Fund

Motion Picture Players Welfare Fund teams for Emergency relief

The Screen Actors Guild Foundation has partnered with the Screen Actors Guild Motion Picture Players Welfare Fund to create a Superstorm Sandy Emergency Assistance Fund for SAG-AFTRA members affected by the recent hurricane.

The orgs have provided $100,000 each. The Actors Fund will provide the social services and coordinate the grant reviews and approvals with checks available at SAG-AFTRA’s New York local office within days.

SAG-AFTRA members may apply to the fund for cash grants of up to $2,400 from the SAG Foundation and an additional $2,400 from the SAG MPPWF.

“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 all SAG-AFTRA members.”
