SIX SIMPLE STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL FUND
Through research and experience, our experts have collaborated to provide you with an easy-to-follow overview of quickly establishing a fund.
ESTABLISH THE FUND
Establishing the Fund is simple and can be completed in as quickly as 48 hours. Provide your company’s legal name, the chosen name of the Fund, the email of the person who will sign the agreement, and the number of members of the Fund’s Charitable Class (those eligible to apply for a grant).
After completing this step, you’ll be assigned a dedicated Relief Fund Senior Advisor who will guide you the rest of the way.
DONATE TO THE FUND
Next, you'll make an initial donation to the Fund.
DEFINE THE FUND'S CHARITABLE CLASS
In this step, you will establish the Fund's grant criteria by determining the following:
- WHO can apply for a grant?
- WHAT occurred to make an applicant eligible for a grant?
- WHEN can an application be submitted?
- HOW large of a grant can be requested?
EAF CREATES THE FUND WEBSITE

- A link to EAF’s dynamic, cloud-based application.
