How emergency financial
relief works

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:
