Film Action Fund

GoFundMe Header
The Nashville filmmaking community is experiencing widespread economic shut-downs due to COVID-19. In response, NFG 501(c)(3) is launching a fund to provide financial relief to the hardest hit support crew during these pervasive job cancelations. We’re asking for tax deductible donations to send aid to the most heavily impacted crew, who are the lifeblood of our film community. Our sets wouldn't function without their dedication. It's time to show how much we care.

How are you managing funds distribution?

Here's a look behind the scenes at are our application review process:

• Once an application is received, Phase 1 NFG Staff assemble the information, verify personal identification, assess job loss documentation & 1099 status, and evaluate risk level & urgency.
• From there, Phase 1 Staff either approve the application for Phase 2 review or reject the application if the required criteria aren't met.
• Next, Phase 2 Staff double verify all application data and reach out to the required hiring contact to verify the claimed canceled work.
• If approved, Phase 2 Staff qualifies the application for a $400 or $800 one-time stipend based on Partial Wage Loss or Total Wage Loss criteria.
• Upon conclusion of the GoFundMe campaign, funds are distributed to NFG through the Paypal Giving Fund, which is only available to verified charity organizations.
• Funds will be distributed to approved applicants through digital means as quickly as possible. All records of funds activity will be available upon request. 100% of funds go directly to applicants in need. NFG is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) and will retain no administration fees.
