Our 2012 Matching Gift Challenge Has Been Extended!
Happy holidays to all of you from everyone at The Actors Fund! As 2012 wraps, we thought we’d share this special message from Actors Fund Chairman Brian Stokes Mitchell about an incredibly generous end-of-year matching gift challenge, which has just been extended!
2012 has been an exciting year at The Actors Fund – our programs are helping more people in the arts and entertainment industry than ever before, and our housing facilities continue providing shelter for so many who might otherwise struggle to keep a roof over their head.
But there’s always more we can do.
When I think of all the people who may spend the holidays worried about how they will make ends meet, it breaks my heart: injured dancers, laid off technicians, sick actors who must choose between buying food or medicine.
Won’t you help us be their lifeline?
Thanks to the generosity of a fellow member of The Actors Fund, every online donation made between now and December 31 will be matched – up to a total of $25,000!
This matching gift couldn’t come at a more critical time. You see, in the past few years, the number of people turning to The Fund for help has increased by 34%.
We are committed to being the safety-net for everyone in entertainment – whether they work on stage or behind-the-scenes – but we need your help!
So please, I urge you to make a year-end donation today. Your gift will double to help more struggling people who work in the arts!
Thank you in advance for giving our lifesaving programs an incredible boost. Time is running out! Donate by December 31 and double the impact of your gift.
Brian Stokes Mitchell, Chairman of the Board
And to make your holdays a little brighter, we thought we’d share the links to special Stokes treats from two recent appearances on CBS New York’s Live from the Couch. He chatted about his new album, Simply Broadway, and The Fund on December 7, and on December 20 he sang one of our holiday favorites, “The Christmas Song.”
All best wishes for a safe and happy 2013!
