The SAG-AFTRA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the most comprehensive, educational and state-of-the-art resources to SAG-AFTRA members. The Foundation believes that the contributions made to our culture by performing artists are not only valuable, but essential.
The Foundation understands that artists live in a rapidly changing world, and it’s imperative that our actors, voiceover artists, broadcasters, dancers, and other artists understand the evolving industry landscape, are provided the tools necessary to navigate these changes successfully, and are given the opportunity to hone their craft as they continue through their careers.
We know there are ups and downs in the performing arts, and the Foundation is here for SAG-AFTRA members, in good times and bad. Through our assistance programs, we work to ensure that no performer is alone when times get tough.
We also offer opportunities for SAG-AFTRA members to make a difference through our children’s literacy program, Storyline Online, and contributing even further to spreading creative knowledge and inspiration while giving back to our communities.
That’s why the Foundation promotes education and giving back to our communities. We believe that by working together as performers, and with our partners throughout the entertainment industry, we can create a vibrant and progressive creative landscape where performers can discover inspirations and achieve new levels in a safe and supported environment.
Acting is about taking chances and leaping into the unknown, and the Foundation is dedicated to helping performers reach their highest heights while always landing firmly on their feet.
The Abaton Calendar is a resource created for and by voice talent, to help create meaningful connections and forge and maintain professional and personal relationships. (And hopefully, have a hell of a lot of fun in the process).
