The insurance industry’s efforts for people struggling in the wake of disasters do not end with paying policyholders’ claims.
The not-for-profit Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) has launched the IICF Hurricane Ian Relief Fund to support those in need after Hurricane Ian. The funds will benefit Team Rubicon, a non-profit organization providing emergency response and assistance in the affected areas, and the SW FL Emergency Relief Fund, which provides critical support to non-profit organizations and people in areas experiencing immediate need.
Through these non-profit organizations, IICF will provide funds for recovery support, temporary shelter and basic supplies, along with non-perishable food, toiletries and diapers for children affected by the storm.
“The insurance industry is rooted in helping others when they need it,”; said Bill Ross, CEO of the 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 affected through charity.”
With the help of the insurance industry, IICF has been able to raise $2.3 million over the past few years to benefit non-profit organizations responding to disaster and pandemic needs across the US and UK.
