The Scoular Foundation Matches Employee Donations to Relief Organizations in Haiti

January 20, 2010

Donations Will Be Matched Dollar-for-Dollar

OMAHA, NE – The Scoular Foundation is matching employee gifts dollar-for-dollar to provide financial assistance to four key disaster relief organizations in Haiti. The matching gift program was established after many Scoular employees expressed a heartfelt desire to help the people of Haiti who are experiencing a humanitarian crisis of a magnitude that few people have witnessed in their lifetimes.

In the interest of getting relief dollars where they are most critically needed and doing so as quickly as possible, The Scoular Foundation selected four organizations with a long-time, feet-on-the-street presence in Haiti. Catholic Relief Services, the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army and World Vision all have existing staff and infrastructure in Haiti to get water, food, medicine and other critical assistance and supplies where they are most needed.
