The Motion Picture & Television Fund helps to support industry workers in need, and the SAG-AFTRA fund supplies emergency financial assistance and health insurance to performers in need.

Meanwhile the Mayor’s Fund provides medical supplies to hospitals and healthcare workers battling the coronavirus outbreak.

The remaining $300,000 will be split among the Lebanese Food Bank, the Lombardo region of Italy and the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).
