The Actor’s Fund is a national nonprofit services organization founded in 1882 serving all professionals – not just actors – in film, theater, television, music, opera and dance through programs that address their unique and essential needs. Employment in any area of entertainment is undependable, work is erratic, security is temporary and health insurance is often just a dream. The Actors Fund is an indispensable part of the entertainment community addressing these concerns.
