Work Disaster Assistance Fund: Helping Social Workers Help Others
NASW established the Social Work Disaster Assistance Fund to provide financial assistance to social workers affected by disasters such as September 11, Hurricane Katrina, the Indonesian Tsunami, and the devastating earthquakes in Haiti in 2010 and in Japan in 2011.
Social workers have always been at the forefront of helping others. When a disaster strikes, social workers may be personally affected and need help themselves. They lose their homes, their jobs, and their businesses (including private practices). Some have even lost loved ones. Your donation will help them re-establish their lives, so they can continue to help others.
Donations go directly to social workers and/or social welfare organizations who can provide assistance to those who have suffered loss and are in need of financial or other assistance due to a disaster. To help us maximize the effects of your donations, preference is given to assisting social workers who in turn can help others. 100% of donations go directly to helping others.
Contributions to the NASW Foundation, a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, are deductible as allowed by law.
