How is Financial Assistance Given?
A Case Manager and the Foundation Director review each application for financial assistance against established Foundation standards. Supervisors may be contacted during this time to verify employment; otherwise, all requests to the Partners Foundation remain confidential. Decisions are usually communicated to applying individuals within 48 hours. When approved, financial assistance is given in the form of a check to pay one or more outstanding bills of the team member. The Partners Foundation mails the check (made out to the creditor) directly to the team member, and they are responsible for making the payment. Financial assistance is never awarded in the form of cash directly to the applying team member.
