Here at MPTF, new stories are created every day as we help people live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. We are a pioneering instance of entertainment industry members coming together to help our own in need, first created from an idea when Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and other stars teamed up to help a fellow actor purchase a much-needed wig for an audition. That moment began a journey that’s lasted nearly a century, with innumerable lives impacted along the way.
MPTF’s mission continues to thrive and grow thanks to the generosity and enthusiasm of our community. Through the stories you’ll discover here, see how the incredible range of how MPTF fosters passion and generosity to those in need in the entertainment industry, bettering lives and making dreams come true every single day.
