Natural disasters - such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, avalanches, floods, wildfires, and severe winter storms - have the ability to cause large-scale damage and threaten human health and safety, property, and infrastructure.
It’s difficult to predict exactly when a natural disaster will occur and the impact it will have on the individuals on your team. Damage from these events can be catastrophic and they can lead to the loss of property, being stranded, suffering from injuries, and even death.
It may continue to get even more difficult with reports of more frequent natural disasters occurring. In this post, we’ll look at whether there has been an increase in natural disasters and the importance of establishing a relief fund to help provide assistance to team members affected by them.
If your organization is interested in starting a relief fund, consider establishing a fund with Emergency Assistance Foundation today. As a financial first responder, we are resourceful and fearless in ensuring that financial assistance reaches individuals in need, no matter the unique circumstances involved.
Once you establish a fund, you can also launch an Immediate Response Program (IRP) in the event of a qualified disaster to provide small grants quickly and efficiently. This is a unique, low-cost program, which is supplemental to a fund’s standard grant program and awards small grants (< $1,000) quickly in times of large-scale disasters.
By establishing a fund with us today, your organization can assist members of your team affected by severe winter weather and other disasters. Relief fund grants can help impacted individuals pull through difficult times and start on the path toward recovery. If you’d like to learn more about how your organization can help your team during difficult times, you can review additional information about how a fund works or contact us today. We look forward to helping you make a difference for those who need it most!
