Losing a loved one is an emotionally challenging experience, and during such difficult times, it is crucial for organizations to support their employees. That’s why the FirstService Relief Fund is here to lend a helping hand.
The FirstService Relief Fund can provide financial assistance to eligible applicants who need help with funeral, burial, or travel expenses after losing an immediate family member. And guess what? The definition of “immediate family” is pretty broad. It includes spouses, parents, kids, siblings, grandparents, grandkids, and even extended family like aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and in-laws.
By including such a diverse range of relationships within the definition, the Relief Fund aims to support individuals as they navigate the challenges of bereavement, regardless of their family structure or circumstances.
The process to access the FirstService Relief Fund is straightforward. Eligible employees can apply for a grant that will aid them in covering the expenses incurred due to their immediate family member’s passing. The fund administrators carefully review each application to ensure that the financial support reaches those who genuinely need it during these trying times.
For employees facing the emotional and financial burden of losing a loved one, knowing that their organization cares about their well-being can make a world of difference. The FirstService Relief Fund stands as a testament to our commitment to our team members’ welfare, extending a helping hand during one of life’s most challenging moments.
