The Principal® Foundation Relief Fund was created to assist individuals who have experienced unexpected financial hardship due to a qualified disaster. Emergency relief grants may be made for immediate food, clothing, housing and transportation needs. The Principal® Foundation started this fund with an initial contribution and encourages others that want to help to consider a donation. Every contribution helps, regardless of the amount. Together, we can support individuals when they are facing the unexpected.
If you are experiencing a personal financial hardship because of a qualified disaster you can apply for a grant for assistance. Please read the Application FAQ to see if you qualify.
The Emergency Assistance Foundation, Inc. will manage all fund activities, and when needed assist applicants with their grant applications. Principal Foundation will not have any insight into the grant process unless a grant recipient chooses to share his or her story.
