- Death of an employee or an employee’s immediate family member resulting in financial hardship.
- Other personal financial hardships caused by catastrophe including, but not limited to, hardships due to catastrophic medical expenses, illness, accident, or violent crime.

Darrell Jones. “The Herzog Foundation stands ready to assist and support selfless servants of God who need help getting back on their feet.”
