Celebrating and Supporting the MPTF Mission
MPTF fundraising events raise awareness and much-needed revenue to support working and retired members of the entertainment community with a safety net of health and social services including temporary financial assistance, residential living, and referrals to community resources. Thanks to the generosity of our corporate partners, sponsors, and donors, over $9 million each year is raised to help MPTF support its charitable programs and services essential to the well-being of the entertainment community.
