Would you like to volunteer for the Actors’ Fund? There are three main ways to help:
In cities across Canada, theatre companies and grassroots arts organizations hold benefits for the Fund that require volunteers to help in a variety of capacities.
We often require assistance at the Toronto office with tasks such as researching theatre companies and preparing mailings.
We are always looking for supporters to speak at rehearsals about ways of donating to the Fund that are tailored to theatre professionals and how the Fund can assist people who are facing serious personal hardship. Visits take 15 minutes and can help spread awareness about an organization that supports your community. You can do a talk at a play you’re in or one that you would like to visit the rehearsal of. Whether you’re a donor, a former client, or just a supporter of the Fund we’d love to hear from you. Your assistance can make a real difference.
We also have advocacy opportunities available in film and television. If you would like to spread the word about the Fund on your set, just get in contact and we can provide you with materials and assistance.
If you would like to get involved in any of these capacities please email Rebecca@actorsfund.ca with your location and whether you are interested in special events, office help or advocacy. We’ll be in touch when an opportunity arises that may be of interest to you.
