COVID19 Performing Arts Professionals Crisis Fund

The Actors' & Entertainers' Benevolent Fund of Queensland is raising urgently needed funds to support the performing arts professionals in Queensland who are in crisis as a result of COVID-19.

The Fund is a registered charity and has been the place Queensland performing arts professionals turn when in crisis or need for over 45 years. And now more than ever, we need your support. COVID-19 is crippling our industry.

Today, there are nearly 5000 people in Queensland who identify as performing arts professionals. Hundreds have already lost  their livelihoods , and thousands more will find themselves without income soon. This is millions of dollars in lost income, and the number will only climb.

Our goal is to support every Queensland performing arts professional effected by COVID-19, and to do that we need your help.

We aim to raise $1,250,000 as a starting point to ensure that every call for help thus far can be answered.

$50,000 may support 200 performers short term.

$100,000 could help 400.

$250,000 could help 1000.

$500,000 could help 2000.

$1,000,000 could help 4000.

$1,250,000 will help the 5000 people we know are in trouble. For now at least.

The Fund have dedicated $25,000 to kick-start this fundraiser.

If you can help, now is the time to give. No amount is too small.
Every donation of $2 or more is fully tax deductible.
Together we can help support our performers in this, their time of need.
