Payroll pledge is one of the easiest ways to participate in contributing to help MPTF sustain its programs and services. It’s also one of the great legacies of our Hollywood story. Our payroll deduction plan began in 1932. Studio workers would pledge a small portion of their earnings to what was then known as the Motion Picture Relief Fund.
Throughout the decades, payroll pledge donors have contributed millions of dollars to support MPTF in taking care of our own. More than 11,000 current industry members still support MPTF through automatic payroll deductions (PDF). This ongoing support makes a huge impact. Contributions can be designated for a specific amount per pay period or a percentage of salary (as low as one-half of 1 percent) and can be stopped at any time with written notice.
Twelve entertainment industry organizations assist MPTF to offer industry members a way to give back through a payroll deduction to MPTF.
