2013 Annual Report
2013 Annual Report
“Everybody on this stage and everybody involved with this
production—including the actors, musicians, theater owners
and producers—donated their time so that we can give all the
proceeds from tonight to The Actors Fund. I haven’t always been
the fabulous diva that you see standing here. There was a time
when it was a little bit difficult for me. I was directed to The Actors
Fund and they sustained me. I mean they really sustained me, from
health insurance to paying my rent. They take so much care and
there is so much grace in how they help and it’s a consistent help.
It’s never something that you feel like you can’t ask for. I think the
biggest lesson for me at that period of time in my life was learning
that the best thing that you can do is ask for help. Organizations
like this are so much more necessary than ever before.”
— Tony® Award winner Billy Porter on his
Kinky Boots Actors Fund Special Performance
The Actors Fund is a national human
services organization that helps everyone—
performers and those behind the scenes—
who works in performing arts and entertainment, helping more than 17,000 people
directly each year, and hundreds of thousands online. Serving professionals in film,
theatre, television, music, opera, radio and
dance, The Fund’s programs include social
services and emergency financial assistance, health care and insurance counseling, affordable housing, and employment
and training services. With offices in New
York, Los Angeles and Chicago, The Actors
Fund has been—for 132 years—a safety net
for those in need, crisis or transition.

Annual Report 2013
Dear Friends,
More than 130 years ago, the entertainment community founded The Actors Fund
to help fellow performing arts professionals in need. This insightful group of
leaders saw that there was a hole that desperately needed to be filled, and they
worked together to create an organization that continues to grow and change in
order to help individuals in need, crisis or transition.
Today, The Actors Fund family—our wonderful Board of Trustees, teams of
advisors, dedicated staff, and volunteers—continues to assess the changing
landscape to ensure that it will always be there to help everyone in our profession,
from musicians to grips, writers to actors, carpenters to camera operators. To
that end, in 2013 members of our Board of Trustees met for a Strategic Planning
Retreat, which you can read more about on page pgs. 6–7.
Staying ahead and adapting in these changing times is vital. In 2013 we helped
more people than ever before: 17,319 individuals—a staggering 28% increase in
just one year, and almost 46% more than five years ago. These numbers illustrate
the fact that the services The Actors Fund offers are more in-demand than ever
before, and this need shows no sign of abating.
As always, we thank all of the people and organizations that help us achieve
our goals: our Board of Trustees, the entertainment unions, theatre owners, arts
organizations, foundations, corporations, individuals and others, each of whom
provides unique input and support to help us help the community at large. And
we thank our biggest supporter, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS: without you,
we couldn’t help as many people as we do.
We invite you to visit actorsfund.org to learn more, make a donation and to find
out how you, too, can join our long-standing tradition of supporting our creative
community.
In 2013, The Actors Fund
helped 17,319 people,
28% more than 2012 and
46% more than just
five years ago.
The Fund’s 25 programs and
services offer emergency
financial assistance, employment
and training, affordable housing,
social and health services.

Support and Wellness
for Everyone in the
Creative Community
“I really consider them my
community here in the city.”

shared how The Actors Fund helped
them in a series of interviews called
In Their Own Words. Watch the full

The many offerings The Fund provides are
available nationally to everyone working in the
performing arts and entertainment, at whatever
stage they are in their career—from the youngest
actors or stagehands to retired musicians.
We offer an array of 25 programs and services
in four primary categories, which ensures we can
provide a helping hand to all those in need, crisis
or transition. From emergency financial assistance
to HIV/AIDS support, health insurance counseling
to women’s health programs, one-on-one sessions
with social workers to employment and training
services, affordable housing to seminars on a
variety of topics, The Actors Fund fulfills a role in
the community that is more vital than ever before.
Social Services
Health Services
Our free and confidential social services cover a full range
of categories. Licensed clinical social workers are available
to provide counseling, financial assistance, practical help
and support to address the many difficulties that can arise
throughout one’s life and career.
In 2013, heath care was at the forefront of our nation’s consciousness—especially with the rollout of the Affordable Care
Act at the end of the year. To help members of our community
take advantage of newly available affordable health insurance
plans, our Artists Health Insurance Resource Center (AHIRC)
held a record number of seminars and counseling sessions to
educate individuals and small businesses about their options
and what they needed to do to enroll (see p. 10 for more). We
also continued to provide free medical care to those in need via
New York’s Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic (the only one of its
kind in Manhattan) and Los Angeles’s Performing Artists Clinic
(in collaboration with MusiCares and the Venice Family Clinic).
6,267 people received
clinical services and
emergency financial
assistance
753 people participated
in our free groups and
seminars
$2.69 million in emergency
financial assistance was
distributed to 3,291 people
for essential needs, such
as preventing evictions,
securing medical insurance
or paying utilities
“It’s a really comforting thing to
know that there’s somebody out
there who understands and cares.”
1,445 patients received
3,161 free visits to NYC’s Al

Affordable Housing
The Actors Fund Work Program
Finding affordable housing—especially in the nation’s entertainment hubs—continues to grow ever more challenging.
In New York, our affordable housing seminars were often at
maximum capacity. In Los Angeles, The Fund worked one-onone with clients, especially seniors, who needed help finding
new homes and moved forward with the project in Downtown
(see p. 14). Additionally:
Because many performing arts and entertainment jobs are
episodic, there are times when people need to find supplemental or alternative income to make ends meet—or they
may even decide to make a career change. The Actors Fund
Work Program (AWP) offers classes, seminars, groups,
tuition assistance and counseling to help its members find
work that perfectly suits their interests and skills. In 2013,
there was a 31% increase in people utilizing AWP’s services
in just one year.
In 2013, 434 residents
called our three existing
affordable housing
locations home:
Our skilled nursing and
assisted living facility—The
Lillian Booth Actors Home in
Englewood, NJ—was home to
144 seniors.
The Dorothy Ross
Friedman Residence,
Manhattan, NY
The Schermerhorn,
Brooklyn, NY

270 people took advantage
of 15 different free classes
922 new jobs reported
1,261 people received oneon-one career counseling

Strategizing for the
Future of The Fund
The Retreat explored five main areas:
Senior Services
With the dramatic growth of the senior population in the US,
The Actors Fund needs to expand its offerings to help the
growing number of seniors in our community.
Renovate and increase
capacity at The Lillian Booth
Actors Home, our nursing
home and assisted living
care facility in Englewood, NJ
Increase social and outreach
services to help seniors
maintain independent living
in their homes as they age
For more on how we’re currently helping our seniors, see p. 12.
Social Services and Workforce
Development
In order to balance the consistent and significant growth in
demand for our programs, we plan to strengthen and expand
our Social Services by hiring additional staff.
In 1882, our founders created a community to
address the distinctive needs of theatre people—
creative people whose talents and aspirations set
them apart and led them to a road less traveled.
The needs of this unique community have
continually changed through the years, and it is
imperative that the support and care The Actors
Fund provides also adapts to this ever-changing
landscape.
In March 2013, members of The Actors Fund Board of
Trustees convened in New York for a retreat to discuss and
refine the plans put forth in a Strategic Plan presented in 2012,
which not only honors our mission, but also considers the
day-to-day realities of the organization and charts a course
for an effective future. The purpose of the retreat was to
explore, discuss and recommend how The Actors Fund
can continue to organize, prepare, and reinvent itself—as it
has successfully done in the past—so that we may continue
and enhance our support to all entertainment professionals
in need.
On March 18, 2013 a dedicated group of Actors Fund
Trustees and industry leaders gathered at New York City’s
Time Warner Center, hosted by Trustee Martha Nelson, to
spend the day exploring how best to serve our community
in the next five years.

Every Artist
Insured—The Artists
Health Insurance
Resource Center
The Actors Fund created its Artists Health
Insurance Resource Center (AHIRC) in 1998
with a single goal: to help all artists in the
nation get quality affordable insurance for
themselves and their families. The passage
of the Affordable Care Act has brought us
within reach of that goal and we spent much
of 2013 educating our community about
their options and helping them access new,
affordable insurance plans. We helped 6,984
people understand the law through workshops,
seminars and one-on-one consultations, and
also spearheaded the launch of The Fund’s new
e-Learning site. Additionally, AHIRC.org logged
431,999 individual website visits.
Helping the Entertainment industry
hubs in New York and California
In New York and California, we helped thousands in the
creative community learn everything they needed to know
to take full advantage of health care reform.
In New York, 363 individuals
attended 58 AHIRC seminars
at The Fund’s offices in
Times Square (including the
popular weekly Getting and
Keeping Health Insurance).
We also worked in coalition
with performing arts and
entertainment unions, arts
councils and membership
associations to spread
the word.
To help people better
understand their Covered
California options, AHIRC
reached out to individuals
via seminars in the
Los Angeles office and
workshops throughout the
state. And for those who
couldn’t make it in person,
The Fund worked with
people via a special toll-free
telephone number.
…as well as everyone in-between!
To make sure artists in other regions had access to
AHIRC’s helpful information, our social workers made
themselves available over the phone and traveled across
the country to offer workshops in places like Aspen, Atlanta,
Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington, DC.
In 2013, AHIRC expanded its workshop and seminar
offerings to include visual arts and crafts professionals,
as well as small arts organizations like theater and dance
companies, in order to help them better understand the
changing health care laws. In addition to the ever-popular
Getting and Keeping Health Insurance Seminar, 2013’s
special ACA workshops included:
Learn Online!
In 2013, AHIRC spearheaded the launch of The Actors Fund’s
new e-Learning Center (which quickly expanded into our other
social service program branches, including The Actors Fund
Work Program). The e-Learning center provides interactive
tutorials in the form of multimedia presentations that offer
information, resources and practical tips from our experts.
2013 tutorials include:
Medicare Basics
Help with Medicare Costs
Getting Medications Discounted or Free
Healthcare Reform Basics

Creative Aging—Paper
Mill Playhouse Residency
at The Actors Home
Home residents were part of an eight
week residency program with Paper
Mill Playhouse, a professional theatre
in New Jersey. “These opportunities
to express yourself creatively have
been shown to reduce depression
and anxiety and to enhance cognitive
functioning,” noted Home Director of
Social Services Lucy Seligson, in listing
the health benefits that can come from
participating in the arts. For the latest
ongoing activities at The Home, visit
actorsfund.org/Blog.
The Actors Fund has been there for
entertainment professionals 65 years and
older, their families and caregivers for more
than 130 years, providing care and support
to help them navigate the transitions related
to aging. Today we offer a range of services,
including support in the midst of a health
crisis, coordination of in-home medical care,
emergency financial assistance, addressing
challenges with Medicare, help accessing safe
and affordable housing, and much, much more.
Meet the Artists
at The Lillian Booth
Actors Home
The Lillian Booth Actors Home is
an especially important and cherished part of The Actors Fund, and
has its own unique history that has always been intertwined
with the lives of artists. Service to our community’s members
as they age has always been at the forefront of The Actors
Fund’s mission. We are committed to providing a warm and
dignified place for people from the creative community who
have given so much to our society. At right are just a few of
our wonderful residents. Read more on pgs. 36-37.
The Home is the jewel in The Fund’s housing crown and
a recipient of U.S. News and World Report’s coveted
“Best Nursing Homes in America” award, bestowed on the
top 2,700 of 17,000 facilities nationwide. Our 124 residents
represent a diverse cross-section of the entertainment
industry—from stagehands to writers to producers and, of
course, dancers and actors, too. Nearly every entertainment
union is represented under our roof in Englewood.
We celebrated just a few of our artists from this
unique community in our Marquee newsletter last year.

Seniors Community Survey
The Actors Fund recognizes the need to expand its programs
and services to support the changing needs of the arts and
entertainment professionals we serve as they age. To inform
our programming and better understand the needs of seniors,
we conducted a survey in the New York City neighborhoods
of Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen, historically home to many
in the arts and entertainment. Included in this survey were
the residents of Manhattan Plaza, the largest affordable
housing complex in the nation dedicated to performing
arts professionals which is located in the Hell’s Kitchen
neighborhood of New York City.
The survey was designed to provide a snapshot of how well
seniors are faring as they grow older in their communities.
Over 1,200 seniors were surveyed and valuable data was
collected about their social service and healthcare needs,
as well as community supports and services. The findings
show pressing concerns such as low incomes, living alone,
hazards in the physical environment, and lack of awareness
of helpful resources and services.
The report features a series of recommendations that respond
to these concerns, including the development of a Seniors
Resource Guide to help people access services available to
them in their communities. We also continue to lead a working
group of senior-serving
agencies to address
additional recommendations. Our work on
the Seniors Community
Survey will better
position The Fund to
plan for the future needs
of our elder colleagues
in entertainment.

10 Years Young and Looking Ahead
LA Creates
The recipient of a 2012–13 Durfee Foundation’s Stanton
Fellowship, our Western Region Director Keith McNutt crafted
a new report, LA CREATES: Supporting the Creative Economy
in Los Angeles. The document focuses on ways municipal
and county governments can better support the creative
industries in Los Angeles County, and provides ideas and
feedback regarding the future structure and goals of these
efforts in the region.
Supporting the Creative Economy in Los Angeles
Keith McNutt, Stanton Fellow
Director of the Western Region, The Actors Fund
In 2003, The Actors Fund partnered with SAG-AFTRA
to launch Looking Ahead, an innovative program tailored
to help young performers and their families address the
unique issues associated with working in the entertainment
industry. Looking Ahead works with young performers ages
9–18 in the Los Angeles area to develop the values, skills
and confidence they need to make successful transitions
to fulfilling adult lives, focusing on a number of primary
components: educational counseling; individual, family,
and group counseling; informational and educational
seminars; programs for parents; group activities for
young performers to connect with one another; and
community service.
In June, the Looking Ahead family celebrated a memorable
decade of successful growth and service at LA’s Taglyan
Complex. Hosted by Looking Ahead Advisory Committee
members including (l-r): Chris Allport, Vice Chair Sharon
Lieblein, Chair Fred Savage, Darby Hinton, Nancy Wileman,
Judy Taylor and Ray Bradford as well as alumni, families,
supporters and members of
our dedicated Advisory Council
gathered for an unforgettable
gala awards dinner that
featured a special performance
by Goodnight Argent. Visit
LookingAheadProgram.org.
This type of support is imperative: according to The Otis
Report on the Creative Economy of the Los Angeles Region,
creative industries comprise the fourth largest sector of the
Los Angeles regional economy, providing over 640,000 jobs,
$200 billion in sales and $3 billion in tax revenue. They can
no longer be overlooked as a matter of coordinated municipal
and county policy in the region.

Revitalizing the Creative
Heart of Downtown LA
One of the ways The Actors Fund is working to support
Los Angeles’s creative community is through affordable
housing. The Fund continues to evaluate opportunities
to spearhead affordable artist housing in the developing
areas of the city in collaboration with Artspace, the City
of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and others.
Preliminary research supported by a grant from ArtPlace
revealed a great demand for affordable artist housing in
Los Angeles, and our vision is to develop a mixed-use arts
facility that would combine 50–60 units of affordable
housing for artist families with complementary space
for non-profit arts organizations and enterprises.
The Fund continues to work with its partners towards the
goal of identifying a viable site and beginning negotiations.

Valley Days
One of The Actors Fund’s most popular offerings in
Los Angeles are the monthly Valley Days events, held in
partnership with Local 80 IATSE, Motion Picture Studio Grips/
Crafts Service in Burbank. Realizing that many of those in the
entertainment community living in Southern California were
finding it difficult to travel the long distances to The Fund’s
Hollywood office, we partnered to host our staff off-site
and bring our services to a wider audience. Thanks to the
incredible generosity of Local 80 IATSE, our colleagues who
live in the San Fernando Valley not only have easy access
to our services, but also have a place to gather and support
each other as a community of performing arts and
entertainment professionals.

Edwin Forrest Society
The Actors Fund established the Edwin Forrest Society to give
special recognition to those selfless individuals who have made
provisions for estate gifts to The Fund. Gifts can be made
through a will, trust, insurance policy, retirement plan and many
other means. Membership is granted to those who pledge that
they have set aside an estate gift so thousands of performing arts
and entertainment professionals in need can rely on The Fund in
the years to come. For information on joining this special legacy
of supporters, contact Jay Haddad, Manager of Planned Giving,
at 917.281.5928, email [email protected] or
visit actorsfund.org/PlannedGiving.

Every year, The Actors Fund’s Edwin Forrest Society gathers in New York and
Los Angeles to mark Edwin Forrest Day, which celebrates the legacy of the
popular 19th-century Shakespearean actor. Forrest left the bulk of his estate to
fund a retirement home in Philadelphia, which merged with The Actors Fund’s
Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood, NJ, a little more than a century later;
its main section bears his name to this day.
The name of this great actor and humanitarian also lives on in our Edwin
Forrest Society. Above, Western Council member Charlotte Rae and Patricia
Morison celebrated with guests in Los Angeles; Actor Michael Hajek read
Shakespeare for residents and guests at The Lillian Booth Actors Home,
here with late Trustee Honey Waldman.

In Memoriam
We mourn the passing of our devoted Trustees Honey Waldman and Jean Stapleton. Honey’s lengthy
entertainment career as a theatrical producer and theatre owner included sizeable charitable efforts
that were always focused on the welfare of the performing artist. Jean served on the Western Council
and Board, advancing the work of The Fund in Los Angeles and across the country. We applaud their
commitment to making the world a better place and their dedication in bringing comfort and relief to
thousands of our colleagues in performing arts and entertainment.
