Donations and Support

The GAF Cares Employee Relief Fund was created to help employees who are facing financial hardship immediately after a natural disaster, impact to individual residences (ie., fire, flood, etc.) or unexpected serious injury or illness, including a pandemic. The Fund relies primarily on individual donations from employees and support from GAF to fund this program. Every contribution helps and when combined with the donations of others can provide a tax-free grant (USA) to help a fellow employee in need when they are facing the unexpected. We believe in helping people protect what matters most in their lives....starting with our own employees..
