Your gift helps us provide vital support to Canada’s arts and entertainment professionals and their families to ensure they maintain their health, dignity, and ability to work.

If, for some reason, The AFC could not keep pace with the need for assistance, unfortunately, people would suffer. I had never imagined before my accident that something like this could happen to me. Now I realize how critical organizations like The AFC are to the entertainment community. We are all incredibly fortunate to have a friend like The AFC, so please give generously. Thank you so much.
