WELCOME TO THE
ACTORS’ & ENTERTAINERS’ BENEVOLENT FUND OF QUEENSLAND

Every year Australian performers make thousands of free appearances in support of deserving charities. But who looks after the performers in need? We do. Since 1975 as Queensland’s leading performing arts charity, the Actors’ & Entertainers’ Benevolent Fund has provided emergency assistance to hundreds of our members.

The Actors’ & Entertainers’ Benevolent Fund is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

ABOUT THE FUND

The Actors’ & Entertainers’ Benevolent Fund (Qld) Inc. has been in existence in Queensland for over forty years and during that time has been able to assist hundreds of performers who for one reason or another have fallen on hard times and needed a helping hand.

The Fund was started in Queensland in 1975 with a donation of $500 from the Actors’ Benevolent Fund of NSW.

The Inaugural and Founding President of the Fund in Queensland was the late Alan Edwards AM MBE JP (founding Artistic Director of Queensland Theatre Company), who was involved for over twenty years – serving as President from 1975 – 1994.
