Grantmakers have a distinct role to play in disasters because of their ongoing relations with grantees, long-term perspective, flexibility, and convening capacity. Lacking the sizable emergency relief resources of governments and some well-known nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), foundations and corporate grantmakers nevertheless can make a significant contribution, for instance, by filling critical gaps in underfunded areas like disaster rehabilitation, prevention, research, and education.</p> <p>Based on lessons learned from a year-long, joint study of the European Foundation Centre and the Council on Foundations, we concluded that grantmakers can be more effective and strategic in addressing disasters by following eight principles of good disaster management:</p> <ol style="list-style-type:decimal;"> <li> <p><b>First, do no harm.</b><br /> Not all disaster assistance is beneficial. Inappropriate items can overwhelm limited transportation, storage, and distribution capacities, thereby delaying the delivery of assistance that is desperately needed. Aim to ensure that your grant contributes to the solution and not to the problem.</p> </li> <li> <p><b>Stop, look and listen before taking action.</b><br /> Information is the key to good disaster grantmaking. Every disaster has unique characteristics. Take the time to learn about the specifics of a disaster before deciding how to respond.</p> </li> <li> <p><b>Don't act in isolation.</b><br /> Coordination among disaster grantmakers, among NGOs operating on the ground, and between these two groups can reduce duplication of effort, make efficient use of resources, and ensure that the highest-priority needs are addressed first. Grantmakers can participate in various standing and ad hoc fora - both real and virtual - where needs are discussed, information is exchanged, and assistance is coordinated.</p> </li> <li> <p><b>Think beyond the immediate crisis to the long term.</b><br /> The emergency phase of a disaster attracts most of the attention and resources. Grantmakers can play a very useful role before the crisis by supporting disaster prevention and preparedness activities and afterward by filling gaps between emergency relief and long-term development programs.</p> </li> <li> <p><b>Bear in mind the expertise of local organizations.</b><br /> Community-based organizations and NGOs with a local presence are the first on the scene when disasters occur. They know best what assistance is needed and they understand the complex political, social, and cultural context of a disaster. However, these organizations are often hampered by the lack of resources and organizational capacity to carry out their important role. Working with and/or supporting these organizations can prove mutually beneficial.</p> </li> <li> <p><b>Find out how prospective grantees operate.</b><br /> Organizations that work on disasters vary greatly in their approach and overall philosophy. Some specialize only in emergency relief while others have a long-term development orientation. Some support the work of local organizations while others do not. It is wise to know what approach you are supporting before making a grant.</p> </li> <li> <p><b>Be accountable to those you are trying to help.</b><br /> Grantmakers should be accountable not only to their donors, boards, and shareholders, but also to the people they seek to assist. Grantmakers need to go beyond merely determining how their grant was spent to engage their grantees in a process that assesses social impact.</p> </li> <li> <p><b>Communicate your work and use it as an educational tool.</b><br /> Highlighting examples of good disaster grantmaking is an excellent way for grantmakers to educate both internal and external audiences about the disaster process. It is useful to build a knowledge base, capture lessons learned, and share your experience with boards, staff, employees, other grantmakers, the media, community groups, public officials, and international organizations.</p> </li> </ol> <p>A number of practical suggestions for good disaster grantmaking flow from these principles and are highlighted in this guide.</p> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div></div><div class="article-body-wrapper document-download"><div class="container"> <div class="layout row layout-builder__layout"> <div class="col-12"> <div class="fixed-block-contentdocument-files block-provus-basic-text block block-fixed-block-content block-fixed-block-contentdocument-files"> <h2 class="title"> <div class="field field--name-field-provus-title field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Download Document</div> </h2> </div> <div class="field-blocknodedocumentfield-files block block-layout-builder block-field-blocknodedocumentfield-files"> <div class="content"> <div class="field field--name-field-files field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="/sites/default/files/documents/files/disasterguide.pdf" type="application/pdf" title="disasterguide.pdf">Disaster Relief: A Practical Guide for Foundations and Corporations</a></span> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div></div><div ><div class="container"> <div class="layout row layout-builder__layout"> <div class="col-12"> <div class="fixed-block-contentarticle-staff-block block-provus-heading block block-fixed-block-content block-fixed-block-contentarticle-staff-block"> <div class="center"> <H2 class="title"> <div class="field field--name-field-provus-title field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Questions?</div> </H2> <div class="subheading"> <div class="field field--name-field-provus-sub-title field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Connect with Council Staff</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="fixed-block-contentrelated-resources block-provus-heading block block-fixed-block-content block-fixed-block-contentrelated-resources"> <div class="left"> <H2 class="title"> <div class="field field--name-field-provus-title field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Related Resources</div> </H2> <div class="subheading"> </div> </div> </div> <div class="fixed-block-contentrelated-events block-provus-heading block block-fixed-block-content block-fixed-block-contentrelated-events"> <div class="left"> <H2 class="title"> <div class="field field--name-field-provus-title field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Related Events</div> </H2> <div class="subheading"> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div></div> Tue, 25 Nov 2014 03:56:55 +0000 council-webteam 1001 at https://cof.org Legal FAQs on Disaster Grantmaking for Corporate Grantmakers https://cof.org/content/legal-faqs-disaster-grantmaking-corporate-grantmakers <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Legal FAQs on Disaster Grantmaking for Corporate Grantmakers</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/council-webteam" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">council-webteam</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sat, 11/09/2013 - 22:24</span> <div class="article-body-wrapper"><div class="container"> <div class="layout row layout-builder__layout"> <div class="col-12"> <div class="extra-field-blocknodeprovus-articlecontent-moderation-control block block-layout-builder block-extra-field-blocknodeprovus-articlecontent-moderation-control"> <div class="content"> </div> </div> <div class="field-blocknodeprovus-articletitle block block-layout-builder block-field-blocknodeprovus-articletitle"> <div class="content"> <h1 class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Legal FAQs on Disaster Grantmaking for Corporate Grantmakers</h1> </div> </div> <div class="field-blocknodeprovus-articlebody block block-layout-builder block-field-blocknodeprovus-articlebody"> <div class="content"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>In the aftermath of a natural disaster, corporate grantmakers often wish to address the needs of employees and the community at large. Grantmakers must understand the legal rules that govern disaster grantmaking. Below are the answers to many common questions on providing disaster relief.</p> <p>Although this information provides the legal context for corporate grantmakers' response to disasters, corporations and their foundations should always review their particular approach with knowledgeable legal counsel.</p> <p><b>Why is the qualified disaster designation important?</b></p> <p>Legislation passed after September 11, 2001 (the Victims of Terrorism Tax Relief Act of 2001) defined qualified disasters and made it easier for corporations and corporate grantmakers to provide assistance in such situations. First, the legislation provided that qualified disaster relief payments (defined below) do not count as wages or other income and recipients do not have to pay income taxes on them.</p> <p>Second, the act's legislative history directed the IRS to issue new guidance permitting company foundations to provide disaster relief to company employees, as long as certain safeguards are in place. IRS Publication 3833 includes the IRS response: As long as the disaster is a qualified disaster and specified criteria are met, a company foundation may offer disaster relief to employees. (Private company foundations may not assist company employees in a disaster that does not meet the definition of a qualified disaster, however, as the IRS reasons that such assistance is serving the business purpose of the corporation and therefore is not charitable.)</p> <p><b>What is a qualified disaster?</b></p> <p>A qualified disaster is: (1) a disaster that results from a terrorist or military action (2) a presidentially declared disaster (3) a disaster resulting from an accident involving a common carrier (4) a disaster caused by any other event determined by the secretary of the treasury to be of a catastrophic nature. For example, Hurricane Katrina was declared a qualified disaster.</p> <p><b>How do I know if a disaster is a “qualified disaster?”</b></p> <p>For domestic disasters, grantmakers should check the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) website at <a href="http://www.fema.gov/" target="_blank">www.fema.gov</a>. FEMA does not indicate whether a disaster is “qualified” but does indicate whether a domestic disaster is a presidentially declared disaster. If this occurs, the disaster is considered “qualified.” For disasters outside the U.S., the Secretary of the Treasury will determine whether to make the qualified disaster designation. This information can typically be found on the IRS website at <a href="http://www.irs.gov">www.irs.gov</a>, but there can be considerable delay before a declaration is announced. The Council will also update its website with whether or not a disaster is qualified, as that information becomes available.</p> <p><b>What is a qualified disaster relief payment?</b></p> <p>Qualified disaster relief payments include payments or reimbursements attributable to a qualified disaster for reasonable and necessary personal, family, living or funeral expenses and reasonable and necessary expenses incurred for the repair or rehabilitation of a personal residence or the repair or replacement of its contents.</p> <p><b>How can we assist affected employees?</b></p> <p><b><i>Direct corporate giving.</i></b> The easiest way for companies to assist employees affected by a qualified disaster is usually through direct company support. A program that uses corporate resources is not required to meet the special conditions that the company foundation must follow. Whether provided by the company or the foundation, qualified disaster relief payments are not taxable income to employees.</p> <p><b><i>Company-sponsored private foundation.</i></b> In the event of a qualified disaster, a company-sponsored private foundation may make disaster relief distributions to employees and their families as long as the following requirements are met (comments on the rules are in italics):</p> <ul> <li>The class of beneficiaries must be large or indefinite.</li> </ul> <p><i>There is little conclusive guidance from the IRS as to how big a group must be to be deemed "large." A few affected employees would not be a charitable class, while a number in the hundreds probably would be. Private foundations can avoid uncertainty by creating programs that provide assistance not just to employees who are victims of Hurricane Katrina, but also to those who suffer losses in subsequent qualified disasters. Opening the program to future victims should satisfy the charitable class requirement because the class of beneficiaries is indefinite.</i></p> <ul> <li>Recipients must be selected based on an objective determination of need.</li> </ul> <p><i>The process for determining need may vary depending upon the circumstances. Immediate needs for shelter and food, for example, may be met without a determination of financial need. Longterm assistance, such as financial assistance to pay for housing for a period of months, would require the foundation to determine the financial need of the individual.</i></p> <p><i>The foundation should maintain documentation that demonstrates individuals' needs. This documentation should include:</i></p> <p><i>(1) A complete description of the assistance</i></p> <p><i>(2) The purpose for which aid was provided</i></p> <p><i>(3) The objective criteria the foundation used to provide assistance</i></p> <p><i>(4) The name and address of each recipient and the amount distributed to him or her</i></p> <p><i>(5) Any relationship between the recipient and officers, directors and key employees of the foundation or its substantial contributor (the company).</i></p> <ul> <li>The recipients must be selected by an independent selection committee (or by other substitute procedures that ensure that any benefit to the employer is incidental and tenuous).</li> </ul> <p><i>A committee is considered independent if a majority of the members of the committee are not in a position to exercise substantial influence over the employer. Members of the board of directors, the chief executive officer and the chief financial officer are examples of individuals typically in a position of substantial influence.</i></p> <p><i>If a private foundation follows those requirements, the IRS will presume that any distribution is consistent with the foundation's charitable purpose and the payment will not be taxable wages for the employee. Also, any distribution to employees?other than individuals who are directors, officers or trustees of the foundation or members of the selection committee?will be presumed not to violate the prohibition against self-dealing. (The self-dealing rules prohibit private foundations, including company foundations, from entering into a range of financial transactions with disqualified persons. Disqualified persons include substantial contributors to the foundation, as well as foundation directors and officers.)</i></p> <p><i>Note that if a private foundation chooses to provide scholarships to assist in the aftermath of a disaster, the foundation still must obtain advance approval of the grantmaking procedures and either follow the requirements for employer-related scholarships and education loans or be able to demonstrate that the scholarships for those affected by the qualified disaster are neither compensatory nor self-dealing. Grants to Individuals by Private Foundations contains more information about the requirements for scholarships.</i></p> <p><b><i>Public charity.</i></b> A public charity, whether sponsored by the corporation or completely independent, such as a community foundation, may also make payments for disaster relief. The guidelines outlined above for company-sponsored private foundations should be closely adhered to in order to ensure that the grants are made for charitable purposes.</p> <p><b>How can we help the affected communities at large?</b></p> <p><b><i>Direct corporate giving.</i></b> The rules for the deductibility of company contributions of products and cash are unchanged by the qualified disaster determination. Contributions of products and grants provided to charities and government bodies for the purpose of disaster relief will be deductible.</p> <p>Note that contributions of inventory?property held for sale to customers?made to charities for the care of the ill, needy or infants generally qualify for greater deductibility than contributions of inventory for other purposes. Typically, companies may receive a charitable deduction of no more than the cost basis of inventory. However, companies donating inventory for the care of the ill, needy or infants may receive a charitable deduction for no more than twice the cost basis of the property. The term "needy" is defined to include a person who lacks the necessities of life as a result of temporary distress and includes victims of a natural disaster. Companies should consult with their advisors to determine the amount of any deduction for contributions of inventory.</p> <p>Grants to non-charities, such as a chamber of commerce or an individual, will not be deductible as a charitable contribution by a corporation.</p> <p><b><i>Corporate-sponsored private foundations and public charities.</i></b> Aside from the differences in grantmaking to employees, there are no special rules for contributions by private foundations and public charities in the event of a qualified disaster. Most relief work is being conducted by public charities and governmental entities. However, a chamber of commerce or other non-charity may be facilitating the support of evacuees in some communities. When making grants to non-charities, private foundations must exercise expenditure responsibility to ensure that the grants are used for charitable purposes. Included in the requirements of expenditure responsibility are the use of a written grant agreement and receipt of follow-up reports from the grantee on the use of the money. Most payments for disaster relief presumably will be charitable, but private foundations must ensure that they follow the <a href="/content/expenditure-responsibility-step-step">rules of expenditure responsibility</a> to avoid incurring an excise tax. Public charities have more flexibility in making grants to non-charities, but still need to ensure that any grant is used for charitable purposes.</p> <p><b>Our employees want to assist affected coworkers, how can we facilitate and/or encourage this giving?</b></p> <p>While corporations may set up bank accounts to collect contributions for coworkers affected by a disaster, payments to such a bank account would not be charitable and, thus, the donor would receive no charitable deduction. However, employees may contribute to a disaster relief fund at a company-sponsored private foundation or public charity and receive a deduction.</p> <p>Company-sponsored private foundations that typically only receive contributions from the corporation should be particularly aware of the substantiation rules. Generally, donors will need receipts for contributions over $250 so that they may claim a charitable deduction. See the IRS publication Charitable Contributions?Substantiation and Disclosure Requirements (<a href="http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1771.pdf">www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1771.pdf</a>) for more information.</p> <p>Company foundations should also take into account state charitable solicitation laws and consider whether they must register in states with such laws before accepting employee donations. Even if gifts from employees would permit the private foundation to be classed as a public charity, this would not happen unless the foundation applies to the IRS for reclassification.</p> <p>Many corporations are mobilizing their matching gift programs through their direct giving program or foundation to encourage employee giving. These programs frequently match gifts either to a particular charity chosen by the corporation?such as the American Red Cross?or to charities of the employees' choice that are providing disaster relief.</p> <p><b>What are some additional resources for more information?</b></p> <p>IRS Publication 3833: <i>Disaster Relief: Providing Assistance through Charitable Organizations</i> (<a href="http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p3833.pdf">www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p3833.pdf</a>)</p> <p><i>Disaster Relief?

Of the larger federal investment, $350 billion is designated for state, local, Tribal, and territorial governments through the <i>State and Local Coronavirus Fiscal Recovery Fund</i>. Without input from philanthropy and charitable organizations, state legislatures and local governments may fail to recognize the consequential opportunity to invest these funds in addressing longstanding challenges in local communities, laid bare by the pandemic.</p> <p>In this webinar, we discussed how philanthropy can be proactive NOW in encouraging local governments to focus on support for essential service providers. The timing is opportune in many communities – local officials need the help! The conversation highlights examples of how the American Rescue Plan Act can expand resources to advance equity and transformative systemic change.</p> <h3>Resources</h3> <ul> <li><a

in your community. To recover successfully from major natural disasters, coordination of public, private, and philanthropic resources is important to avoid duplication of effort and to deepen the array of supports available to communities. Disaster funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are declared quickly but are not necessarily the fastest available dollars for assistance to individuals for lifeline support. In this session, FEMA Philanthropic Advisors and Coordinating Officers joined three community foundations to share how they are currently working together on long-term recovery plans in communities impacted by recent wildfires in the West and tornado and flood events in Kentucky and Tennessee. Learn how and when FEMA dollars flow after disaster declarations are issued and what government funding programs are available to communities for long-term planning and future mitigation.  </p> <h3 class="title">Speakers</h3> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-4" style="margin-bottom:20px;"><img alt="Zak Usher" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="c13e54cd-7ba6-428c-a909-b77799f4a414" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/zak%20usher.jpg" style="width:150px;height:auto;" class="align-center" width="437" height="437" loading="lazy" /> <p align="center"><strong>Zak Usher</strong><br /> Acting Deputy Director, Individual Assistance Division<br /> FEMA</p> </div> <div class="col-md-4" style="margin-bottom:20px;"><img alt="Myra Shird" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="ece56973-aa6a-4251-a193-2a0ed7d9d65e" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/1516468598845.jpg" style="width:150px;height:auto;" class="align-center" width="317" height="317" loading="lazy" /> <p align="center"><strong>Myra M.
