We would like to announce the formation of the Susquehanna Civil Benevolence Fund. This Fund is designed to serve two purposes. The first purpose is to assist Susquehanna Civil employees, their spouses or eligible dependents who are facing financial hardship, legal concerns, or non-financial support needs because of an unexpected, qualified incident. All determinations of qualification for distributions will be made by an external review committee to alleviate any concern of bias or breach of confidentiality. Secondly, the fund is designed to allow employees to make contributions, and be able to give back to our community and those in need, while also being able to deduct it on their tax returns as charitable contributions.
Formation of this fund is the culmination of 2 years of research and preparation. We are more than excited that this has now come to fruition.
