The RAE Family Foundation Emergency Relief Fund is designed to provide short-term assistance to employees experiencing severe financial need due to an unexpected/unavoidable emergency.
Grants will provide short-term assistance to RAE Corporation employees and leased employees experiencing severe financial need due to unexpected and unavoidable emergencies.
The RAE Family Foundation Emergency Relief Fund is administered by the Tulsa Community Foundation, an organization specializing in assisting employees through emergency assistance and disaster relief funds. Applications are confidential and identifying details are never shared with RAE without applicant consent.
|In the event of an unexpected and unavoidable emergency that causes severe financial hardship, employees may apply for assistance within the following categories by meeting specific qualifications. Please remember that not all emergencies will qualify for maximum assistance. Please only apply after you have exhausted all other options for financial assistance.
Applicants must have been employed by or worked for the company for at least three (3) months. Limit of two (2) grants for assistance per calendar year and four (4) grants per employee and his/her family per lifetime at company.* This program is intended for those who have exhausted all other options for financial assistance.
Note: To comply with IRS conditions, program guidelines restrict assistance to employees experiencing severe financial need due to specific unexpected, unavoidable emergencies which can be documented. While all emergencies and financial hardships are unfortunate, incidents outside of program guidelines cannot be approved.
Employees should use available resources such as medical/life insurance, PTO, short/long term disability, personal savings, assistance from family members, etc. before applying for assistance. If ineligible, TCF can refer applicants to other resources in their community.
Upon approval, grant recipients are typically mailed a check made payable to the vendor requesting payment (i.e. landlord, utility company, contractor, etc.). We understand that each situation is unique so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Immediate family is defined as the following: spouse; brother/sister; children; step-children; grandchildren; parents; step-parents; grandparents; mother/father-in-law; son/daughter-in-law only.
* After receiving two grants, an employee is required to complete a budgeting/credit counseling session before another application will be considered. After receiving 3 grants, an employee is required to attend a 3-session financial education course before another application will be considered. Tulsa Community Foundation (TCF) will automatically send you information about these courses if you have previously received two or more grants, OR contact TCF in advance of submitting an application, firstname.lastname@example.org.
