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
