This could be your best read.

Falling literacy rates are a major problem in this country. Your talents as a performer can help provide a solution. By reading aloud to children, you can inspire them to develop their own skills and encourage a love of reading. Make the magic of words come alive with your gift of storytelling by volunteering with BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools).  To learn more, visit or contact Robin Roy, Director of Literacy Programs, at (323) 684-8606.

Planned Giving

Make giving a goal.

With a bit of advance planning, you can support the SAG Foundation’s efforts and aid SAG-AFTRA members in need while also furthering your own tax, financial and estate planning goals. Contributions can be in any amount in cash or a variety of other assets, immediate or deferred, during your lifetime or posthumously, through trusts, annuities, wills or pooled funds whichever best suits your individual needs. Several options provide an income stream to you or your beneficiaries for life.
