The AGMA Relief Fund is ecstatic to announce donations up to $5,000 to the Giving Tuesday campaign will be generously matched by an AGMA Governor!

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Each year #GivingTuesday provides an opportunity for friends and supporters of the AGMA community to come together and support the Relief Fund’s longstanding mission of helping AGMA Artists.

On #GivingTuesday, and every day, there are a number of ways you can support the AGMA Relief Fund.

  • Donate! Make a gift of any size to the AGMA Relief Fund
  • Encourage others to participate! Share this message to your network of friends who love and support the Arts
  • Spread our message! Post about the AGMA Relief Fund on your social media platforms

The AGMA Relief Fund was established in January 1945, at a meeting of the AGMA Board of Governors “to aid Artists who have fallen upon bad days.” Today, the AGMA Relief Fund is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable organization, and a separate entity from the American Guild of Musical Artists with its own Trustees. The Actors Fund administers this program nationally and provides comprehensive social services to AGMA members.

The AGMA Relief Fund is 100% dependent on donations (which are tax deductible!) in order to confidentially provide both financial and other temporary, emergency relief to AGMA members. Throughout the past 20 months, AGMA Artists have depended upon the AGMA Relief Fund more than ever.

Please consider assisting the AGMA Relief Fund on #GivingTuesday by sharing our efforts with your network and/or making a gift of any size. We thank you in advance for being an AGMA Relief Fund advocate.

As a reminder, any AGMA member in good standing (and/or on honorable withdrawal) is entitled and encouraged to apply for hardship assistance through the AGMA Relief Fund. Please visit agmarelief.org to learn more or begin the application process.

The AGMA Relief Fund depends on your generosity.

COVID-19 has made a devastating impact on the Arts. Reports estimate nearly two-thirds of artists across the U.S. are now fully unemployed due to the pandemic. As a result, the AGMA Relief Fund has seen a 2,000% increase in emergency financial assistance granted to AGMA artists.

The viability of the AGMA Relief Fund depends on donations. No amount is too little and funds go toward AGMA artists in need during the most catastrophic health and financial crisis in our history.

The Arts will play a major role in our nation’s healing, so please help our artists today. Consider donating to the AGMA Relief Fund. Your generosity has the power to help unite and heal the AGMA community. Another way you can help is by sharing this announcement with your friends and network.

We thank you for your previous, and continued, support of the AGMA Relief Fund and hope you stay safe and healthy.
