LPL Financial Foundation Commits $100,000 to Disaster Relief Efforts Nationwide
Communities in California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee as well as parts of the Northeast have been devastated by natural disasters, causing evacuations, flooding, outages and other damage. In support of the communities and businesses impacted by these recent natural disasters, the LPL Financial Foundation has committed $100,000 to disaster relief efforts.
“The LPL family extends our support to those who are facing hardship due to the recent hurricanes, wildfires and storms that struck across the United States,” said Tim Carter, LPL Financial Foundation President.
The LPL Foundation made a $20,000 contribution to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund, which will help provide supplies, meals and shelter to those affected and displaced by recent disasters. The remaining funds are committed to longer-term relief to aid the recovery and rebuilding of underserved small business owners, and will be disbursed through organizations dedicated to small business resilience.
