PARTNERS AND AFFILIATES

We are proud to team up with other organizations working and advocating for small businesses in the theatre and performing arts and those providing resources for the people of the performing arts community.

Founded in 1882, The Actor's Fund serves all professionals—and not just actors—in film, theater, television, music, opera, radio and dance through programs that address the community's unique and essential needs.

Employment in any division of the performing arts and entertainment industry is unpredictable. Work is erratic, security is fleeting and health insurance is often just a dream. For all of these reasons and many more, The Actors Fund is an indispensable and deeply significant part of the entire entertainment community.

As a national organization with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, they directly serve thousands of performing arts and entertainment professionals across the country every year, in person and via online resources.

Be An #ArtsHero is an intersectional, grassroots movement that emphasizes Arts & Culture’s contribution to the economy, highlighting the human and financial toll of letting that contribution collapse. They are a united, sector-wide coalition calling for Congress to allocate proportionate relief to the Arts & Culture sector.
