Helping Hands Employee Hardship Fund

The Desert Mountain Foundation has launched a new tax-advantaged fund called Helping Hands. The sole purpose of the Helping Hands fund is to assist DMF employees and their legal dependents who face a significant, temporary financial hardship caused by a sudden, unexpected event beyond their control. The program is overseen by a review committee. DMF and Desert Mountain Master Association have provided tax-deductible seed money to establish the fund.
