Donation to Direct Relief

ESICA has made a donation of $1,000 to Direct Relief in support of their disaster relief efforts. Each year, ESICA and CSIA host a joint conference, in September, to bring together members from both organizations to network and discuss important industry topics. The 2017 Conference was scheduled to take place in Houston, Texas at the beginning of September. Unfortunately, due to the disaster caused by Hurricane Harvey, the conference was cancelled.


Although the conference did not take place, we knew that we needed to help. After much research, we came across Direct Relief and were extremely impressed by all the organization has done and continues to do for those who need support during such trying times.


Direct Relief was rated #1 by Charity Navigator, American’s largest evaluator of charities, and was given a 4-star rating.  The charity uses 99.4% of the funds they receive toward programs and services.


Direct Relief was the highest-rated California-based charity in Forbes Magazine’s annual ranking of the 100 largest U.S. charities. They earned a perfect score of 100 percent in fundraising efficiency (percent of private donations remaining after fundraising expenses) and a 99 percent rating for its charitable commitment (charitable services as a percent of total expenses).
