Thank you for joining us at the premier event on relief fund administration!

Granting Hope 2024: The Global Relief Fund Summit was a resounding success! We we want to thank all of our attendees for a truly rewarding summit filled with meaningful connections, insightful takeaways, and a deepened commitment to taking care of team members in need.

Granting Hope is a bi-annual event, and we hope you'll be able to join us in 2026!

“The summit was inspiring, empowering and motivating. I’m so happy to have been a part of it and even more excited to keep the momentum going. Thank you to EAF for being such a phenomenal partner and for hosting such a successful event—can’t wait for the next one!”

"Company relief funds support working families and lessen the burden on government resources. They’re also a great way for organizations to take care of their own. Big thanks to the team at the Emergency Assistance Foundation for an informative and engaging conference."

“Had a fantastic time speaking on a panel at Emergency Assistance Foundation's Granting Hope 2024 Summit. Feeling inspired having so many people focused on creating a financial safety net for their employees. We've seen first hand the impact hardship funds can have on financial and emotional well being. So whether you are just getting started or have been doing it for many years, cheers on the amazing work. This is how we help each other.”

“Thank you for hosting such an intentionally designed experience for relief fund leads, Emergency Assistance Foundation.”

Erin Brockovich

Say the name Erin Brockovich and you think, strong, tough and stubborn. Erin is all that and definitely more.

It’s been over 15 years since Julia Roberts starred in the Oscar-winning tour de force, Erin Brockovich. The film turned an unknown legal researcher into a 20th century icon by showcasing how her dogged persistence was the impelling force behind the largest medical settlement lawsuit in history. The story and eventual film made “Erin Brockovich” a household name. Over time, Erin realized that she could use her notoriety to spread positive messages of personal empowerment and to encourage others to stand up and make a difference.

Because of her fighting spirit, Erin has become the champion of countless women and men. She is this generation’s “Dear Abby”, and in fact receives thousands of “Dear Erin” letters and emails each year from people who are begging for help and support in their own personal struggles. Erin proudly answers every one of them.

As President of Brockovich Research & Consulting, she is currently involved in numerous environmental projects worldwide. She has requests for her help in ground water contamination complaints in every state of the US, Australia, and other international hot spots. She is a true American hero whose icon status and “stick-to-it-iveness” only fuels her determination to expose injustice and lend her voice to those who do not have one.
