How We Can Help
- Swift Charities may be able to provide financial support for our Swift families who have encountered unexpected financial hardship as a result of a qualifying hardship event such as:
- Medical Emergencies: Severe Illness, Accident, Injury
- Natural Disasters: Earthquake, Tornado, Hurricane, Flood, etc.
- Death in the Immediate Family
- In order to maintain the Swift Charities tax exempt status with the IRS, we are unable to approve grant requests for financial issues that are based on:
- Poor financial planning
- Unsuccessful personal investments
- Legal expenses
- Fluctuations in the economy
- Equipment failure, lack of freight/miles
- For more specific information regarding hardship and disaster relief guidelines as defined by the IRS please use this link to review the IRS Publication
