Disaster Relief

When major disasters affect PLUS members and their families, the PLUS Foundation is there – providing emotional and financial support.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma Relief

In partnership with the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) and on behalf of the industry as a whole, PLUS Foundation announces a $50,000 donation for hurricane relief.

Residents in Texas and Florida, as well as service organizations in those areas, are reeling from the devastation caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.  PLUS Foundation, continuing a tradition of support in the aftermath of natural disasters, authorized grants to the United Way of Greater Houston Relief Fund and the United Way of Florida Hurricane Irma Relief Fund to aid in recovery efforts. These organizations and relief funds were selected because of the way in which they engage local leaders in identifying the greatest unmet needs and fund a broad range of services in the impacted areas. Additionally, as established charitable organizations they will remain as cornerstone community service organizations through the entire disaster recovery process.

Hurricane Sandy Relief

Acting on our mission to reflect the generosity of the professional liability community, PLUS Foundation is mobilizing resources to help those devastated by Hurricane Sandy.  Losses are vast and varied, and those hit hardest still struggle to meet their basic needs.

We asked PLUS members and colleagues to help us support food banks serving the most heavily impacted areas from this devastating storm.  For every dollar donated PLUS and the PLUS Foundation each matched it—ultimately donating $3 for every $1 raised from members.

Nearly $37,000 was donated. This equates to approximately 145,000 meals. Thanks to all who gave so generously!
