As Surge of COVID-19 Cases in India Continues, Spiceworks Ziff Davis and J2 Global Partner with America’s Charities to Launch Employee Assistance Fund
By America's Charities on May 19, 2021
Austin, TX – May 17, 2021 — America’s Charities, a 501(c)3 nonprofit which inspires employees and organizations to support each other and causes they care about, is pleased to announce the launch of an Employee Assistance Fund in partnership with Spiceworks Ziff Davis (SWZD), a division of J2 Global. As a leader in intent-backed, intelligent, omnichannel marketing, SWZD is the trusted global marketplace that connects technology buyers and sellers with some of the most actionable and precise intent data.
Initially established to aid employees in India affected by the COVID-19 surge, the J2 Global Employee Assistance Fund will also provide financial assistance to eligible employees and their loved ones around the world who experience financial hardship, health crises, and/or unexpected loss of life. SWZD established the fund with $25,000 in partnership with J2 Global and will be supplemented by a company match of all employee donations up to $25,000.
SWZD and J2 Global join more than 100 U.S. and international companies who have turned to America’s Charities’ more than 40 years of proven charitable funds management and employee engagement expertise for supporting employees and their local communities facing hardships.
“SWZD and J2 Global are determined to prove what it really means to be #oneteam – that rallying around our peers in their time of need isn’t dependent on where we’re located,” said Richard Jalichandra, Global General Manager, SWZD “This fund is an opportunity to exemplify our purpose, our values, and our commitment to our people – and their families – by being there to support them when they need it most,” Jalichandra added.
The fund will be reviewed, verified, and operated by America’s Charities, which has an established program to help employers of all sizes and across all industries create and operate EAFs and is the only organization to offer a charitable giving component, which enables coworkers and the wider community to support their colleagues and neighbors. By partnering with America’s Charities, all grants made from the fund are tax-free, providing maximum support to employees when they need it. By bundling other aspects of giving, America’s Charities also empowers employers to easily integrate EAFs with their other CSR programs and achieve even more social good.
“Corporate social responsibility is more than what you do for others – it is also about what you do for your own employees,” said Jim Starr, president and CEO of America’s Charities. “From corporate philanthropy to employee giving, and volunteering to adopting sustainability practices, businesses are striving to be the difference for their employees and their communities. And we are thrilled to help clients like SWZD and J2 Global who want to embrace their social responsibility, improve their communities, and use their resources to meet the challenges facing our world.”
