The insurance industry’s efforts on behalf of people struggling in the wake of disasters doesn’t end with paying policyholder claims.
The nonprofit Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) has launched the IICF Hurricane Ian Relief Fund to support those in need in the wake of Hurricane Ian. Funds will benefit Team Rubicon, a nonprofit providing emergency response and relief throughout affected areas, and SW FL Emergency Relief Fund, which provides critical support to nonprofits and people in areas experiencing immediate need.
Through these nonprofits, IICF will provide funds for recovery support, temporary shelter and basic necessities, along with non-perishable food, toiletry items and diapers for children impacted by the storm.
“The insurance industry is rooted in helping others at their time of need,” said Bill Ross, CEO of IICF. “As tens of thousands of Floridians struggle to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Ian, we as an industry are moved to support those impacted through charitable giving.”
With the help of the insurance industry, IICF has been able to raise $2.3 million over the past few years to benefit nonprofits responding to disaster and pandemic needs across the United States and the United Kingdom.
