As we all continue to grapple with the changes COVID-19 has brought to our lives and livelihoods, many people are struggling — and some of those people may be your employees. Many of Benevity's clients already have employee relief funds set up to help their people when unexpected circumstances arise — whether it’s an illness, injury or natural disaster. And just like we see in the wake of a hurricane or earthquake, right now your people likely fall into one of two categories: someone who needs support or someone who wants to support others.

Benevity Founder and CEO, Bryan de Lottinville:

By now, you’ve probably received at least a hundred emails from the companies you do business with outlining the measures they are taking to maintain business during this time, and the precautions they are implementing to help stem the spread of COVID-19. Open and transparent communication is absolutely essential at a time like this, and we have done the same

And we want to convey a different message as well.
