The Creative Coalition is a nonprofit, (501) nonpartisan, politically-active group formed of members of the American entertainment industry.

As of August 2009, Tim Daly and Dana Delany were co-presidents. The organization was founded in 1989 by Ron Silver. Mr. Silver consulted attorney Joseph Califano at Dewey & Balantine and business manager and accountant Abe Altman. He received all the paperwork to begin the organization. He consulted with a few colleagues who then joined Mr. Silver in the signing of the certificate of incorporation as Board of Directors.

According to the certificate of incorporation of The Creative Coalition, dated 03.13.90, the initial board of directors were Stephen Collins, Jaynne Keyes, Meir Ribalow and Ron Silver.

Notable members have included Ron Reagan, Blair Brown, Michael J. Fuchs, Alec Baldwin, Joe Pantoliano and Tim Daly. The coalition addresses both industry related issues, as well as general social issues. The group educates leaders in the arts community on issues of public importance, specifically in the areas of First Amendment rights, arts advocacy and public education.

The group has sponsored benefit galas at both Democratic and Republican conventions, raising nearly $1.8 million during the 2004 presidential campaign. However, it does not contribute to political campaigns directly. It employs lobbying firm Quinn Gillespie & Associates to advance its interest in Washington.
