A History of Giving Equity Fights AIDS was founded in October 1987 by the Council of Actors’ Equity Association. Money raised through the efforts of Equity theatre companies across the country was specifically earmarked for The Actors Fund’s AIDS Initiative. Broadway Cares was founded in February 1988 by members of The Producers’ Group. Money raised was earmarked to be awarded to AIDS service organizations nationwide, including Equity Fights AIDS. In May 1992, Equity Fights AIDS and Broadway Cares merged to become Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The Board of Trustees of this newly established not-forprofit fundraising organization assumed the missions of the previously separate organizations and continues to fund the social service work of The Actors Fund and award grants to HIV/AIDS service organizations nationwide. Unlike most other nonprofit, grant-making organizations, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS must raise every single dollar of our philanthropic budget every year in order to fulfill our mission. In turn, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS works hard to ensure that the money we raise is spent carefully and wisely on programs where these hard-earned funds can have the maximum possible impact.

Dear Friends, Today, we build on the 29-year legacy of the Gypsy of the Year competition with the newly minted Red Bucket Follies. The red bucket has come to represent Broadway Cares to theatregoers in the same vibrant way as the now-iconic red ribbon, featured prominently in the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS logo for more than 25 years. Seen in the lobby of theatres in New York City and across the country, the red bucket illustrates our commitment to fundraising and grant-making. The renaming of Gypsy of the Year to Red Bucket Follies embraces the buckets as symbols of care, action and resilence. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ legacy is one of inclusion and bringing people together. Our commitment to those defining motivations is bigger and more important than a single word or the name of an event. Even with all the diverse opinions that go into any endeavor in this wildly creative, deeply caring and, yes, at times, contentious neighborhood, there are bigger battles we must take on together. Your support of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS this year allowed us to fight those battles across the country. Together we’ve awarded an astounding $13.7 million dollars, donated in ways large and small, from the $1.8 million raised at Broadway Bares to the single dollars placed in red buckets after audience appeals. Every one of these gifts has contributed to the impact of our philanthropic spirit. Our work together fueled $5.9 million in support this year to The Actors Fund. Our unique partnership grew from the singular support of the HIV/AIDS Initiative 30 years ago into today’s indispensable safety net of social services, helping thousands in our community who are in crisis, need or transition. Your support also provided $7.3 million to 471 AIDS and family service organizations in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., reaching out to hundreds of thousands dealing with debilitating illnesses and crises. Only a few weeks ago, Broadway Cares awarded $225,000 in emergency grants to immediately help those battling and affected by the devastatingly historic wildfires spreading in California. These donations to Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation, Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation and The Actors Fund help augment the emergency assistance being provided to first responders and entertainment industry and performing arts professionals across California. As we have over the last 30 years, we will celebrate fundraising and grant-making today by showcasing ensemble members and special guests performing original skits, songs and dances. Whether you are one of those actors, a red bucket volunteer, or a loving member of our community, your commitment and generosity of spirit radiates well beyond the fun we have this afternoon. Thank you. Sincerely,
Tom Viola Executive Director
Gypsy of the Year Becomes Red Bucket Follies Each fall, now for the 30th time, our community has been coming together to celebrate a collective, steadfast commitment to helping those facing the challenges of HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses. It all started at the St. James Theatre on November 28, 1989, with the first Gypsy of the Year competition. Hosted by Jonathan Hadary, Tyne Daly and the company of Gypsy, this fledgling event - produced by Maria Di Dia and Tom Viola and directed by Michael Lichtefeld - raised more than $64,000 and featured the companies of A Chorus Line, Black & Blue, Cats, Grand Hotel, Gypsy, Jerome Robbinsâ€™ Broadway, Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, Sweeney Todd, The Heidi Chronicles, The Threepenny Opera and Vampire Lesbians of Sodom/The Lady in Question. Today, we stage the 30th edition of this beloved classic, honoring the legacy of Gypsy of the Year and celebrating its new name and renewed spirit, Red Bucket Follies. We are deeply grateful to all who have made this event so wildly successful. You are the heart, soul and muscle of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Your efforts enable Broadway Cares to continue to offer essential assistance to those in the entertainment industry and to more than 350 social service organizations in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.

THE ACTORS FUND A TIMELINE OF LIFELINES: 30 YEARS OF LIFESAVING SUPPORT For 30 years, your support of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has helped The Actors Fund’ provide a helping hand and supportive shoulder to those in the entertainment industry and performing arts when they’re in a time of need, crisis or transition. “We are proud stewards of this support,” The Actors Fund Chief Executive Office Joe Benincasa said. “How Broadway Cares inspires our community is absolutely miraculous and it makes The Fund’s good work possible.”
1988 - HIV/AIDS INITIATIVE 2018 grant: $2,000,000 Total since 1988: $52,750,000
When the theatre community was desperate for help during the height of the AIDS crisis, the HIV/AIDS Initiative was there to offer lifesaving support and services to people in need. Today, as people are living longer with the disease, the HIV/AIDS Initiative has adapted to offer confidential, comprehensive services that address emotional, medical and financial needs for the long term.
1996 - PHYLLIS NEWMAN WOMEN’S HEALTH INITIATIVE 2018 grant: $850,000 Total since 1996: $11,100,000
In 1996, Broadway Cares expanded its support of The Actors Fund beyond the HIV/AIDS Initiative for the first time with a $10,000 grant to help launch the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative. With services addressing the unique and specific health concerns of women, the initiative offers a place they can turn to for help and advice without the fear and stigma presented in other health care environments.
1998 - THE CAREER CENTER 2018 grant: $300,000 Total since 1998: $4,885,000
In 1998, Broadway Cares began financially supporting The Career Center, then known as the Actors Fund Work Program. The center helps industry professionals identify and find fulfilling secondary work that complements their performing arts career.
2004 - THE SAMUEL J. FRIEDMAN HEALTH CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS 2018 grant: $900,000 Total since 2004: $10,811,000
Fourteen years ago, Broadway Cares’ support helped The Actors Fund start addressing the medical needs of the industry through the Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic. The health clinic evolved into The Samuel J. Friedman Health Center for the Performing Arts, a medical care center designed with entertainment industry folks’ unique schedules and lifestyle in mind. The Friedman Health Center opened in March 2017 in Times Square.
2005 - THE STAGE MANAGERS’ PROJECT 2018 grant: $100,000 Total since 2005: $846,000
The Stage Managers’ Project is a reliable directory of doctors, specialists and other health care providers in 28 states for Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring productions. This allows stage managers and their companies to have access to extensive, thoroughly vetted health care resources.
2007 - THE DANCERS’ RESOURCE 2018 grant: $300,000 Total since 2007: $2,685,000
It’s no secret that dancers have physically demanding jobs, and their rigorous careers lead to a unique set of health challenges and setbacks specific to their work. The Dancers’ Resource, which launched with a $150,000 grant from Broadway Cares, is geared toward dancing professionals recovering from injuries, needing emotional support or facing other issues.
2014 - ARTISTS HEALTH INSURANCE RESOURCE CENTER 2018 grant: $450,000 Total since 2014: $2,150,000
Entertainment professionals who are uninsured or underinsured and looking for assistance with health care can turn to the Artists Health Insurance Resource Center. Today, these concerns are even more urgent, as the tense political climate continues to attack the Affordable Care Act. The Actors Fund is ready to help individuals navigate these troublesome waters.
2015 - ADDICTION AND RECOVERY SERVICES 2018 grant: $450,000 Since 2015: $1,700,000
When striving to achieve and maintain sobriety, finding a confidential support system is key to attaining one’s goals. Broadway Cares began funding The Actors Fund’s Addiction and Recovery Services in 2015. The services support entertainment professionals as they learn to manage their lives without the abuse of mood-altering substances, as well as help the families, partners and friends of those in recovery cope with the effects of a loved one’s substance abuse.
Total 2018 grants: $5,896,575 Total grants since 1988: $94,761,575 In 2018, Broadway Cares expanded its support to include three additional programs. The Safe Workplace Initiative offers resources, counseling and training sessions to fight harassment, bullying and bias within the industry. Senior Services assists entertainment professionals in addressing the myriad of issues they may face as they age. Looking Ahead, a program that helps young performers make a healthy, successful transition to adulthood, opened the Paul Libin Center, its New York City home. The center was funded by Broadway Cares and named in honor of Libin, Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS’ president emeritus. PHYSICIAN VOLUNTEERS FOR THE ARTS In addition to support for The Actors Fund, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS provided a $85,000 grant this year to Physician Volunteers for the Arts. Thanks to this grant, some 5,000 flu shots were given at more than 50 Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, theatre-related organizations and management offices.

NATIONAL GRANTS ORGANIZATIONS OFFER SUPPORT IN UNDERSERVED REGIONS Even with today’s medication and treatment options, the burden of living with HIV/AIDS can weigh heavy on those living with the disease. This stress is intensified when the individual lives in regions plagued by stigma and a lack of open conversation about the disease. In rural Alabama, an area where shame toward HIV/AIDS runs rampant, a lack of acceptance and tolerance creates a toxic environment for HIV-positive residents. “Stigma is a big issue in a rural area because you have close-knit communities where everyone knows everybody’s business,” said Robbie Hines, a medical case manager at Health Services Center in Anniston, Alabama. Health Services Center currently serves more than 551 people living with HIV and AIDS within a 9,000 square mile area. Eighty-two percent of the clientele served have a household income equal to or below the federal poverty level. Health Services Center, which received a $10,000 grant from Broadway Cares this year, strives to be a one-stop shop for HIV care in the region. More than 900 miles away in the city of San Antonio, HIV-positive residents like Damien, a client of the San Antonio AIDS Foundation, struggle with similar effects of stigma. “There are just so many strikes against me,” Damien said. “In the black community, being gay is an abomination. Then, living as an HIV-positive, black gay man in the heart of Texas, it’s hard.” For clients like Damien, San Antonio AIDS Foundation gives him the support system he needs to get help and thrive. “The case managers give me a positive outlook on life,” Damien said. San Antonio AIDS Foundation’s 2018 grant of $10,000 from Broadway Cares was part of this summer’s largest grant round, which awarded more than $2.2 million to 307 organizations. This round’s funding covers direct services and case management, supportive housing programs, emergency financial assistance, harm reduction programs and quality of life services. Earlier this year, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS awarded $2 million to 121 organizations in 38 states for food service and meal delivery programs because healthy meals are an essential part of a lifesaving regimen. In April, $1.2 million was awarded to 48 nationally recognized AIDS service and advocacy agencies. In 2018, Broadway Cares awarded a total of $7.3 million to 471 organizations. “The services you’re providing by supporting Broadway Cares are changing so many lives for the better,” Hines said.

BUCKET BRIGADE VOLUNTEERS An army of 145 tireless volunteers and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS staffers enhanced the Red Bucket Follies fundraising efforts this season. They held buckets and sold autographed memorabilia in the lobbies of Broadway and Off-Broadway theatres alongside company members of participating shows. Over the course of six weeks of audience appeals, volunteers filled 3,958 shifts at 1,107 appeals. Our sincere thanks to these unsung heroes: Broadway Caresâ€™ famous bucket brigade.

INTERNATIONAL GRANTS Since 1996, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has awarded more than $6.5 million in special grants to HIV/AIDS service organizations outside the United States. The grants are in appreciation of fundraising done by those Broadway companies with a distinct international affiliation. The first of these donations was a $5,000 grant given to West End Cares in London in honor of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream after the company participated in the 1996 Easter Bonnet Competition. Since then, grants have been made in honor of dozens of actors and productions from around the world who have generously given of their time and talent. Recipients have included TheatreMAD in London, The AFC (formerly The Actors’ Fund of Canada) and The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research. In 2018, $42,500 has been awarded to 5 organizations, including the SPCA in Gander, Newfoundland, on behalf of Come From Away. A important piece of Broadway Cares’ international grants is South Africa. The incidence of HIV/AIDS in South Africa remains among the highest in the world. It’s a reality that continues to hit close to the heart for many in the cast of Disney’s acclaimed production of The Lion King. As natives of South Africa, they’ve seen the epidemic’s toll first-hand in their hometowns and villages. Inspired by The Lion King’s enthusiastic fundraising, more than $4.8 million has been awarded in grants to South Africa HIV/AIDS organizations since The Lion King opened on Broadway. The grants have been sent to 67 AIDS service providers in honor of and identified by the South African actors in the Broadway and national touring companies of The Lion King.
