Strategic Disaster Response Programs:
Launch Employee Assistance Initiatives.
Establishing an Employee Assistance Program for qualified disaster allows your employees to request assistance in a time of need. Show your employees that their company and coworkers have their backs. Employees can apply for financial support or employees can donate to the employee relief fund.
Encourage Direct Personal Giving.
Consider adopting or expanding personal giving programs with credit card donations to facilitate giving and expedite disbursements. Include a list of featured organizations for seamless donor/employee experience and direct funds to where they are needed most.
Offer Unrestricted Recovery Grants.
Consider stabilization or recovery Grants: new unrestricted grant(s) to nonprofit partners to assist them through this challenging time. Leverage the quick launch Covid-19 Response grant application. The intent of this application is to streamline the application process and reduce further burden on the nonprofit organization.
“In times of need, we see communities come together to do extraordinary things. This pandemic is no different. We are humbled by the efforts of our store associates, nonprofit partners, and citizens across the globe who are coming together to support those in need.
