Entertainment Industry Foundation Creates Coronavirus Response Fund

Date:

The Entertainment Industry Foundation has created a Coronavirus COVID-19 Response Fund to help those negatively affected by the outbreak.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, our own community has been impacted tremendously. Productions have halted, many displaced workers have found themselves without pay or medical care, and live entertainment is at a standstill. Every aspect of the entertainment business has been disrupted,” the foundation said in a statement.

The Entertainment Industry fund says the money will provide relief for those who work in the entertainment industry who are most vulnerable and affected by the looming economic crisis. Funds will support public health response to the threat posed by this virus including the prevention and treatment of new cases of Coronavirus.

“As a partner to the entertainment industry, we are here for those in need in a time of crisis, whether it be a natural disaster or a global pandemic,” said EIF President and CEO Nicole Sexton. “Together, we can help to ease the financial pressure that is felt by so many in our community and beyond as we navigate these next few weeks and months.”

Donations towards the EIF can be made here.
