Get Started

I'm interested in opening up an Employee Disaster Fund (EDF), what’s next?

The first step is to complete a fund agreement, which can be found here. Email the completed fund agreement to donate@siliconvalleycf.org. SVCF will contact you to finalize your fund set-up, discuss your goals for the program and walk you through the fee structure. After your fund is established, your EDF will have the support of a dedicated SVCF manager.

Employee Disaster Fund fees

  • $1,500 startup fee
  • 2% on all gifts into the fund
  • Per application fee: $0 for first 5 applications, $100 for each subsequent application
  • $300 minimum annual fee
  • $25,000 minimum establishing gift within a 60 day window
