As 2018 comes to a close and you consider year-end charitable gifts, remember your fellow agents affected by natural disasters by donating to the Trusted Choice® Disaster Relief Fund.
Established by the IIAA Educational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity, the fund distributes cash grants to victims and surviving family members of natural disasters. It helps provide for immediate or ongoing financial needs when other resources are not available, filling the gap until other funding sources become accessible. The fund also provides insurance agents with supplies and resources to aid victims and surviving family members in their communities.
Individuals and businesses can donate to the fund online. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
For those seeking aid, grant applications and criteria and guidelines are also available.
