We are E4E Relief

We pioneered emergency financial relief more than 20 years ago. We’ve been leading the way ever since.

Your partner in relief

The world has changed a lot since our first relief grants in the wake of 9/11, but the need for our work remains. Disasters and hardships can strike at any time, leaving individuals struggling to manage unexpected expenses. Companies have the power to help with a charitable solution powered by E4E Relief.

Over the years, our solution and our organization have evolved. We expanded to serve companies and their key stakeholders across the globe. We increased our investment in technology, and we built the best team in the business.

Compassion is our

At E4E Relief, compassion is part of our DNA, and we see it create maximum impact for our clients every day. Doing good is good for business, and a heartfelt response to disaster and hardship creates a stronger connection between a company and its stakeholders, employees first among them.

Client testimonials

“Since we started our relationship with E4E Relief, they have always been able to scale in times of crisis. We had horrible storms in Texas for our own employees and agents. We had over 100 people applying at once. Everybody had really fantastic service and was able to get what they needed very quickly.”

Heather Nesle

SVP, Corporate Responsibility
New York Life Insurance Company

“E4E Relief has supported other Fortune 500, 100 companies with a similar program, and they provided us with not only the model but the best practices to use. So their expertise and their advice and their guidance – we needed a partner like that.”

Lynette Bell

President, Truist Foundation

“I would recommend E4E Relief based on the needs of a corporation to move quickly, to move efficiently and effectively but to do it with core values that align. If you’re doing this as a corporation, you’re doing it because you value your employees. You’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do. Those align with E4E Relief, and they’re going to come in and support you to do this in the right way.”
