The fund provided me with very generous support not solely financially but also through offering me alternatives and other support networks to be able to navigate through an unexpected and incapacitating injury. As my work life has started to steady, I look forward to being able to return the generosity I received. It was invaluable and I would not have been able to support myself without their help.


As a victim of the 2011 Brisbane floods, I was financially and emotionally unprepared for the hardships of natural disaster. The ABF were there for me. I was offered emergency funds to help get my life back on track. And, knowing I had the moral support from my community meant more than words can say. Thank you for your unconditional benevolence.


Words cannot express how grateful I am for the support of The ABF - through serious financially difficult and terrifying situations. The ABF gave me hope and security!”


I'm endlessly grateful to the ABF for their help in a time of personal grief. Their assistance in helping me get to my family after my father's passing was a great relief. They were a source of clarity and support when I needed it most.


I am so grateful for the support I have received. It has taken some stress out of a stressful situation and made me feel like someone is there to help when the chips are down. You will never really know just how much the support I received has helped, financially and mentally, thank you. Never thought I would need help... the ABF treated me with respect and care, I will forever be grateful


At a time of crisis, of life threatening illness, when all our financial resources were utterly exhausted, a guardian angel had our backs just enough to let us get on & get through. Thank you forever & always.”


I never thought I would call on the assistance of the Actor's Benevolent Fund in my early years as an actor, but they have assisted me on a couple of occasions in recent years , and their generosity was incalculable, helping me to keep food on the table, a car on the road and help ease the burden of crippling financial concerns. I am forever indebted to them.


The ABF supported me in a time of great anxiety. I had developed a tumour on my arm, and before I knew it, the ABF was immediately by my side. Emotionally and financially. Fortunately, the tumour turned out to be benign, but it still lives within my arm, and I have to have it constantly checked, in case it decides to grow. I know the ABF will be with me in whatever journey this takes me. They are an extraordinary foundation, and I will be forever grateful to them.


The Fund gave me the help I needed, when I needed it, privately and without fuss. I appreciated all of that greatly. How good that the Fund exists.


Knowing the ABF was there to help me financially, during a very dark and difficult time in my life, gave me mental and emotional space to keep putting one foot in front of the other.


I found myself in a situation where I was deep in debt and completely overwhelmed by it. Thank God the Actors’ Benevolent Fund came to my rescue and helped me sort out such a big mess. I shall be forever grateful.


When I received assistance from the ABF, it felt like a warm and welcoming hug. I am deeply grateful to you and your support during a financially difficult time.
