Tributes and Memorials

The Tributes & Memorial Program is an important part of our fundraising efforts for the Pioneers Assistance Fund and Will Rogers Institute. Your generous donation will help members of the theatrical community who have fallen on hard times, as well as provide much-needed funds for pulmonary research laboratories and fellowships across the United States.

Send a Will Rogers card to honor someone’s memory, to honor an achievement, or to wish a loved one a happy birthday.  An elegant card is sent to your loved one, or their family, acknowledging that a contribution has been made in their honor.

Industry members are encouraged to make a restricted donation to the Pioneers Assistance Fund. Your donations do make a difference. The following giving levels are suggested:


Food and Household Necessities

Sometimes it is difficult to make ends meet. A donation on this level will provide grocery gift cards or local transportation.


Home Health Supplies & Safety Aids

A donation on this level ensures that an industry member has the smaller necessary items that insurance often does not cover.


Assistive Devices

A donation on this level will ensure proper equipment for those encountering a temporary or permanent disability. The right aid can have a direct impact on quality of life during the difficult time.


Medical, Dental, Rx Medication

A donation on this level will help defray the cost of unexpected fees and co-pays after an accident, injury or work slowdown.


Health Insurance & Physician Fees

No one should have to live without health insurance or the ability to see the proper doctor. A donation on this level will ensure that does not happen.


Moving Expenses, Rent
or Mortgage Payments

When faced with economic challenges, housing is a large concern. Donating at this level helps us provide assistance for a housing crisis.


Family Crisis or Funeral Expenses

The loss of a loved one is always tragic. A donation on this level will offset the financial burden of a funeral or unexpected emergency.


The Tom Sherak Pioneer Grant

This grant, named after industry icon Tom Sherak, provides monthly stipends to motion picture industry veterans. A donation on this level will support multiple pioneers annually.
