About the Houdini Fund
Magicians who have fallen ill or have been injured may be helped through the Houdini Fund, an integral part of the S.A.M. Magic Endowment Foundation. The Fund will assist any magician or allied artist who is in financial need, with extra expenses normally not covered by insurance, such as nurses, oxygen, wheelchairs, and other similar medical requirements. Funds are granted for comfort assistance such as in- hospital TV rentals and news paper delivery, outpatient aides and additional drug assistance. The Fund has paid for transportation to and from medical facilities. These are grants and not loans. Payments are kept confidential.
If you would like to submit a request for funds, please contact the trustees.
You do not have to be a member of the S.A.M. to apply.
You will need to submit a letter by mail from a doctor, or a copy of a recent medical bill to certify that you are under medical care.
