Normally the eligibility for the grant is based on issues such as flood, fire, tornado, earthquake, hurricane, etc. (but cases can be made for viruses such as COVID-19).

Please note in order to qualify you must be administered by a committee that either has no relationship to the employer or is a group of employees who represent a broad cross section of the work force. Further, members must understand that they are acting as individuals, not as representatives of the employer.

Significant success factors include:

  • Customized program design – leadership endorsed
  • An engaged employee oversight committee
  • Tax efficient/optimized
  • Broad and clear grant guidelines and eligibility
  • Operational compliance
  • Grant process and administration
  • Integrated program with other departments
  • Application participation targets

 

Two factors usually determine success for these firms: 1) How many of their employees donate to the fund? 2) How effective they are in creating goodwill within the company and community. They often see 10 to 40 percent of their employees making donations while 1/2 to 1 percent of employees receive grants each year.
