What is emergency
Learn how our tech-enabled solution allows you to support the people who power your organization when they need it most.
Let’s start with the basics of relief
Our Emergency Financial Relief solution provides charitable grants to individuals facing hardships or disasters. These unexpected crises can shatter financial stability, increase stress and impair overall well-being. For more than 20 years, compassionate companies have seen these moments as an opportunity to support their most valuable asset: their people.
Today, with our world-class technology and our expert team of relief advisors, we can extend financial relief to multiple stakeholders across multiple continents, from employees and contractors to suppliers and the broader community.
How emergency financial
A disaster hits an area where you have a large concentration of key stakeholders, including employees and suppliers. With the cost of evacuations and repair, those individuals find themselves struggling to get out of harm's way and make ends meet.
If your company has an emergency financial relief program, those individuals have a place to turn to avoid additional negative consequences. They visit your relief platform to apply for relief, and if approved, a charitable grant is disbursed directly to their account to help cover the costs of unexpected expenses.
The result: Increased well-being, decreased stress and a significant boost in productivity and engagement.
What does emergency financial relief cover?
In designing your emergency financial relief program, our team of relief advisors partner with you to determine the events your company will cover. Eligible events generally fall into two categories:
This category includes climate-related disasters, such as hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, floods and wildfires. It also includes geopolitical events such as military conflicts.
This category includes personal challenges and crises, including loss of a spouse, domestic violence, short-term illness and lost income due to partner job loss.
