"I love being a part of NextGen to help spread the word about the excellent work of MPTF and connecting present and future generations of industry members with those who have come before us." -Cate Adams, Production Executive, Warner Bros. 

"MPTF was introduced to me by a co-worker who I am very friendly with.  She invited me to a NextGen event and I was immediately drawn in by the organization’s cause.  I love the tradition of MPTF.  The tradition of care, the tradition of looking after ALL the members of our great industry.  I absolutely love the spirit of compassion from every person I encounter who is part of MPTF.  I am so happy to have found a place where this spirit exists and has existed for quite some time." -Ian Friedman, VP, Comedy Central Talent & Development

"Participating in MPTF’s mission of helping the entertainment community in their times of need is not just a good idea, it’s a great way to feel a connection to a larger community. When I’m side by side with others who work in the Industry volunteering for MPTF, or spend time with the residents at the Wasserman Campus, it makes me realize in a very real way that we’re all in this together, at all stages of life." -Vanessa HoltgreweAssistant Director, Motion Picture Department, IATSE West Coast

"I don’t know where I would be without MPTF. Their support and guidance to myself and my family during some challenging times means more than I can put into words. They have a such storied history of helping Hollywood help each other and I’m so proud to honor that legacy by being a part of the NextGen that is going to help change someone else’s!" -Michelle Homerin, 20th Century Fox Television

"To me, MPTF is about taking care of those in our industry that came before us and cleared the way for us to follow our dreams and affect the world. I couldn't be more proud to say thank you to them and to work with MPTF in helping them live with the grace they so greatly deserve. We take care of our own." -Charley Koontz, Actor

"Hollywood is a community with a lot of wonderful organizations, but there’s only one organization for the whole Hollywood community. The Motion Picture and Television Fund is a valuable link to the industry’s past that secures a future for those who need it." -Sam Miller, Writer

"It started with a small group of people and has grown into a community.  And in that growth the principal of helping each other has never diminished, but amplified. Our industry can be unpredictable. Life can be unpredictable.  No matter who you are or what you’re facing, what will always be a constant is that MPTF will be there for you." -Sheritalyn Solis, Manager, Story & Creative Platforms, Paramount Pictures

The campus has an undeniable energy which I am dedicated to contribute to." -Shawna Wexler, Brillstein Entertainment Partners
