The SAG-AFTRA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the most comprehensive, educational and state-of-the-art resources to SAG-AFTRA members. The Foundation believes that the contributions made to our culture by performing artists are not only valuable, but essential.
The Foundation understands that artists live in a rapidly changing world, and it’s imperative that our actors, voiceover artists, broadcasters, dancers, and other artists understand the evolving industry landscape, are provided the tools necessary to navigate these changes successfully, and are given the opportunity to hone their craft as they continue through their careers.
We know there are ups and downs in the performing arts, and the Foundation is here for SAG-AFTRA members, in good times and bad. Through our assistance programs, we work to ensure that no performer is alone when times get tough.
The SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s award-winning children’s literacy website, Storyline Online, streams imaginatively produced videos featuring celebrated actors including Viola Davis, Chris Pine, Rashida Jones, Lily Tomlin, Kevin Costner, Annette Bening, James Earl Jones, and Betty White reading children’s books alongside creatively produced illustrations, helping to inspire a love of reading in children.
Storyline Online is available 24 hours a day for children, parents, and educators worldwide. For each book, supplemental curriculum developed by a credentialed elementary school educator is provided, aiming to strengthen comprehension and verbal and written skills for English-language learners worldwide.
