#GivingTuesday: Support AGMA Artists

Published November 30, 2021   |  By Musical Artists  |  Post in All Areas
Each year #GivingTuesday provides an opportunity for friends and supporters of the AGMA community to come together and support the Relief Fund’s longstanding mission of helping AGMA Artists.

Today is Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Each year #GivingTuesday provides an opportunity for friends and supporters of the AGMA community to come together and support the Relief Fund’s longstanding mission of helping AGMA Artists.

On #GivingTuesday, and every day, there are a number of ways you can support the AGMA Relief Fund.

  • Donate! Make a gift of any size to the AGMA Relief Fund
  • Encourage others to participate! Forward this email to your network of friends who love and support the Arts
  • Spread our message! Post about the AGMA Relief Fund on your social media platforms

The AGMA Relief Fund was established in January 1945, at a meeting of the AGMA Board of Governors “to aid Artists who have fallen upon bad days.” Today, the AGMA Relief Fund is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable organization, and a separate entity from the American Guild of Musical Artists with its own Trustees. The Actors Fund administers this program nationally and provides comprehensive social services to AGMA members.

The AGMA Relief Fund is 100% dependent on donations (which are tax deductible!) in order to confidentially provide both financial and other temporary, emergency relief to AGMA members. Throughout the past 20 months, AGMA Artists have depended upon the AGMA Relief Fund more than ever.

Please consider assisting the AGMA Relief Fund on #GivingTuesday by sharing our efforts with your network and/or making a gift of any size. We thank you in advance for being an AGMA Relief Fund advocate.

As a reminder, any AGMA member in good standing (and/or on honorable withdrawal) is entitled and encouraged to apply for hardship assistance through the AGMA Relief Fund. Please visit agmarelief.org to learn more or begin the application process.
