Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS
Even after the curtain falls, Broadway actors find ways to give more and share with their audiences. Many of the talented artists who draw crowds into the Circle in the Square, Belasco, Shubert, St. James, New Amsterdam, and other historic Broadway theatres dedicate their time offstage to helping others. For more than two decades, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has been at the forefront of the fight against AIDS. Since its founding in 1988, the organization has raised awareness and more than $250 million to ensure that people living with HIV/AIDS and other serious illnesses have access to the medications and support they need for their treatments to be effective.
Broadway Cares awards grants to more than 450 AIDS and family service organizations throughout the United States as well as to organizations in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and South Africa. This support allows social service providers large and small—from major metropolitan areas to isolated rural communities—to deliver nutritious meals, supply lifesaving medication, and provide counseling to hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children. In addition to these lifesaving grants, Broadway Cares also supports The Actors Fund, a nationwide organization that helps performing arts and entertainment professionals with a safety net of social services.
