As the national human services organization for entertainment industry professionals, The Actors Fund has already seen a surge of emergency financial applications in this time of shutdown associated with public safety during the COVD-19 pandemic.
Though Ticketmaster and Telecharge are processing automatic refunds, members of the theatre-going public have suggested donating the value of that refund to The Actors Fund. “We fully support and are so grateful for any donations people are able to give,” says Joseph P. Benincasa, CEO of The Actors Fund. “The Actors Fund is honored to be a part of a community that thrives on taking care of each other. If you can, please donate to support everyone working in performing arts & entertainment & help spread the word about The Fund’s online services.”
