IATSE Makes Donation to Disaster Relief in Japan

On March 14, 2011, the IATSE made a donation to the Red Cross for Japanese disaster relief from the Walsh/DiTolla/Spivak Foundation. IATSE International President Matthew D. Loeb is the Chairman of the Foundation. On March 11th, Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded and an ensuing tsunami.

In 2005, the Foundation established a special fund to help those IA members who suffered serious financial hardship in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Last year the Foundation also contributed to relief in Haiti, after the devastating January, 2010 earthquake.

The Foundation is also the source of funding for scholarships awarded to the sons and daughters of IA members in good standing.
