Create Your Own Event

As an organization that serves people working in a creative industry, we are often approached by people who want to hold unique fundraisers. These have ranged from a photography exhibition where prints of famous actors were sold to benefit the Fund, to a theatrical benefit starring the companies of the National Touring productions of WICKED and THE BOOK OF MORMON, to BBQ’s which bring the community together. With some energy and a creative team, the possibilities are endless!

The Fund can often provide assistance with the planning and execution of a fundraiser, as well as help to publicize it. If this type of assistance is required please contact us and we’ll do everything we can to help make your event a success.

Some ideas to get you started are: 

  • Hold a raffle, a 50/50 draw or an auction
  • Hold a community BBQ
  • Organize a dinner fundraiser
  • Put on a cabaret or variety show
  • Hold a bake sale
  • Hold a marathon like a dance-a-thon, bowl-a-thon or read-a-thon
  • Host a tournament (usually involving a sport or game)
  • Yard/prop sale or recycling drive

The possibilities are endless for our creative community! 

Are you an independent theatre company that would like to hold a benefit for the Fund?

  • Most of the information here will be relevant to you
  • In addition to traditional benefits, you may wish to hold a staged reading or make your dress rehearsal a pay-what-you-can benefit

The Actors’ Fund Is For Everybody

The Actors’ Fund is not just for actors. The Fund helps creators, performers and technicians working in theatre, film & television, music and dance.
