During this unprecedented crisis, the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s mission of helping communities and enriching lives is more important than ever. We remain steadfastly committed to raising funds for our charity partners who provide vital services and support to people across the country. To facilitate a collective industry response and help people in need during this pandemic, IICF has launched the IICF Covid-19 Crisis: Community Relief Fund. However, we cannot do it alone. We need your support to help people and make a difference.
How can you help?
Charities expect Covid-19 to cause an average decline of 48% in fundraised income alongside a 43% rise in demand for services*. Many charities do not have the resources to meet growing demand for services and others working with young people cannot provide services due to school closures. This places vulnerable people at even greater risk of health issues, food insecurity and homelessness. For children, the disruption to their education is another significant risk that can have a lasting detrimental effect on their academic potential. You can help by giving through IICF in this industrywide campaign to support small charities chosen by the industry.
WHO WILL YOU HELP?
Proceeds will benefit IICF UK’s charity partners such as:
- Scran Academy is producing and distributing 500 meals each week to vulnerable people in Edinburgh – adapting its catering programme for students to provide critical services in the local community.
- The Access Project, based in London, is now providing virtual tuition to allow secondary school students from low socio-economic backgrounds to continue their education.
- St Gilet Trust urgently requires funds to continue supporting their clients: people no longer have access to food to feed their families who have insecure work and who have no safety net to fall back on.
