The Actors’ Fund launched a fund raising campaign in March 2009 with a goal of reaching $12.5 million. President Loeb implored all local unions to contribute to the Fund and to advise their members of the services offered by the Fund. The IATSE makes an annual contribution of $12,500 and has done so consistently for many years.  President Loeb doubled that contribution, with the approval of the General Executive Board, on a one-time basis to $25,000.

Combined efforts of the International and its local unions resulted in commitments of over $600,000 dollars to this campaign.

The Actors’ Fund is a nationwide human services organization that helps entertainment industry professionals in theatre, film, television, music, opera, and dance in times of need, crisis, and transition.  President Loeb is a member of the Actors’ Fund Board of Directors.
