Letter From the Presidents: Members Relief Fund Announced

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 24, 2020
Updated: Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Dear Members,

Today the Guild is announcing the creation of The Producers Guild of America Members Relief Fund. The launch of the fund is made possible by a generous lead gift from former PGA president Mark Gordon, in the amount of $100,000. Members who are in need of emergency financial relief due to the coronavirus crisis can apply for aid at actorsfund.org/gethelp.


In these unprecedented times, the most immediate need for so many of our members is financial assistance and resources. It is for this reason that we have moved quickly to put into place an emergency fund to help support members whose livelihoods have been impacted by the coronavirus crisis.

While the PGA relief fund has a limited amount of money currently available, we hope to continue to grow this resource so we can serve and assist as many of you as possible. To that end, we are doing a broad outreach to secure further donations and increase the longevity of the fund.

Anyone interested in donating can do so by going to actorsfund.org/PGA. Any support you can offer will be greatly appreciated. No donation is too small, and charitable contributions are tax-deductible.

It is by pulling together and supporting our fellow PGA members that we will make it through this crisis. Please know as members of the Guild, you are not alone. We are here to offer emotional support, financial assistance and resources, as well as to keep our community of producers engaged during this time of great uncertainty.

Regarding details for the new fund, it is being administered by The Actors Fund, which offers resources and assistance for entertainment professionals in all areas of the industry.

The Producers Guild of America Members Relief Fund will provide financial help of up to $1,000 to qualifying applicants. Members must provide the following to be eligible for funds:

• Current Producers Guild of America membership letter (to be provided by the PGA)
• Most recent bank statement
• Current lease or mortgage

Again, that link to apply for aid is actorsfund.org/gethelp. To donate, you can go to actorsfund.org/PGA.

Stay well.

Sincerely,
