Who We Are

The Screen Actors Guild Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive, educational and state-of-the-art resources to the performance community. The SAG Foundation believes that the contributions made to our culture by performing artists are not only valuable, but essential.

The SAG Foundation understands that artists live in a rapidly changing world, and it’s imperative that our actors, voiceover artists, broadcasters, dancers and other artists understand the evolving industry landscape, are provided the tools necessary to navigate these changes successfully, and are given the opportunity to hone their craft as they continue through their careers.

We also know there are ups and downs in the performing arts, and we are here for union performers, in good times and bad. Through our assistance programs, we work to ensure that no performer is alone when times get tough.

We also offer opportunities for performers to enhance arts appreciation through storytelling and reading programs for children in public schools and online, contributing even further to spreading creative knowledge and inspiration while giving back to our communities.

That’s what the SAG Foundation promotes education, support, and giving back to our communities. We believe that by working together, as performers and with our partners throughout the entertainment industry, we create a vibrant and progressive performing arts landscape where performers discover inspirations and achieve new levels in a safe and solid environment.

Acting is about taking chances and leaping into the unknown, and the SAG Foundation is dedicated to helping performers reach the highest heights, and always land firmly on their feet.
