About The Fund

The Actors Fund, a nonprofit human services organization founded in 1882, serves all professionals - and not just actors! - in film, theater, television, music, opera, and dance through programs that address their unique and essential needs. 

A national organization with offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, The Fund directly helps thousands of performing arts and entertainment professionals across the country every year, and hundreds of thousand through our online resources. In providing care and service to professionals throughout the industry, The Fund's programs are wide in scope, responsive in nature, and produce significant results, affecting the lives of people in our community year after year.

Employment in any division of the performing arts and entertainment industry is unpredictable.  The life of an entertainment professional is very similar to any worker or independent contractor that moves from job to job to make their living.  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
