Allowing clients to develop a truly flexible approach, JK Group helps organizations configure their giving programs to include their own employee assistance fund, multiple payment options, featured charities and the promotion of a disaster relief initiative to employees.

"When devastating events occur, corporations find that their employees are more than eager to do whatever they can to support relief efforts," said Robert E. Farina, CEO of JK Group. "Our solutions give our clients the tools to create a quick response to any disaster, natural or otherwise, that enables their employees to provide immediate assistance to those in need."

The large amount of aid that has been sent by our clients in a short amount of time, and which continues to grow as more of our clients become involved in relief efforts, highlights our ability to connect our clients with fully vetted international charitable organizations able to deliver necessary aid to victims of Typhoon Haiyan."
