The Motion Picture & Television Fund is expressing its “eternal gratitude” to the DGA and the Directors Guild Foundation for their continuing support, which includes $5 million in donations over the past 20 years.
“For 70 years, the DGA and Directors Guild Foundation have made MPTF their primary outside charity,” the MPTF said on Friday in a message to its supporters. “This special recognition and appreciation of us taking care of its members and the greater community of creative workers has resulted in $5 million donated over the past two decades. Last year during the pandemic, we proudly administered the DGF Emergency Relief Fund, supporting members and DGA trainees during a challenging period. Thank you to the DGA and the DGA Foundation for their amazing philanthropy and taking such good care of our community.”
