If there’s anything life teaches us, it’s that it is completely unpredictable. In the face of that uncertainty, it’s important to know that you can rely on the help of others when something goes wrong.
In 2017, more than 8,000 Foresters members were able to rely on our Emergency Assistance Programme to help them recover and rebuild after wildfires and hurricanes devastated cities and towns all across North America.
Our Emergency Assistance grants provide short term, temporary financial aid to members affected by significant personal hardships, natural disasters or large-scale emergencies. A glance at the map highlighting the disasters that happened in 2017 shows just how needed these grants were.
To be able to support our members during times of struggle and uncertainty helps to ensure their well-being and resilience, and that in turn strengthens the communities where they live.
