The SAG Foundation has a long and successful history of providing a helping hand to the acting community. Our work can't be done alone, and we've made some great friends along the way, including individual contributors, corporate sponsors and dedicated volunteers who believe as we do that "giving your all" means "giving back."

Falling literacy rates are a major problem in this country, and your talents as an actor can help provide a solution. By reading aloud to children, you can inspire them to develop their own skills and encourage their love of reading. Make the magic of words come alive with your gift of storytelling by joining BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools). To learn more, visit www.bookpals.net or contact Robin Roy, Director of Literacy Programs (323) 684-8606.
Give a little, give a lot
Your small residual checks add up to a big help by endorsing and sending them directly to us (SAG Foundation, 5757 Wilshire Blvd., Ste. 124, Los Angeles, CA 90036). Or, you can bring them to any AFTRA-SAG Federal Credit Union office, where they can be transferred directly to the SAG Foundation.

The SAG Foundation’s internship program allows college students to receive school credit by assisting with general office administration, special projects and event management. In the SAG Foundation’s encouraging environment, students learn about the entertainment industry with first-hand experience.
Make giving a goal
With a bit of advance planning, you can support the SAG Foundation’s efforts and aid SAG-AFTRA members in need while also furthering your own tax, financial and estate planning goals. Contributions can be in any amount you choose, in cash or a variety of other assets, immediate or deferred, during your lifetime or posthumously, through trusts, annuities, wills or pooled funds -- whichever best suits your individual needs. Several options even provide an income stream to you or your beneficiaries for life.
