Remember iprovision in your will
The CIPR's benevolent fund, iprovision, has called on PR professionals to remember the charity and the support it provides when considering their legacy.
iprovision delivers critical support to public relations professionals who've fallen on hard times, whether through sickness or other unfortunate cicurmstances.
The charity has published a new leaflet promoting the initaitive as part of Remember a Charity Week.
The CIPR’s 70th anniversary year is an important time to reflect on progress, but also to consider how we can support those in our membership experiencing hardship. Thanks to the iprovision team there is now the opportunity for legacy giving, providing another option for those looking to help.
How does iprovision offer support?
Rebecca, a CIPR member from the South East, was diagnosed with cancer and facing financial hardship as her salary stopped during medical treatment. iprovision was able to help with an initial one off grant of £ 1,000 made within days of receiving Rebecca’s application.
"I was so impressed with the speedy response and the help to complete and progress my application in such a short time frame. iprovision continued to offer assistance and Rebecca has subsequently been able to return to work."
"I don’t know where I would be without the support from iprovision. The financial help I received gave me some choices, and allowed me to focus on getting through my fairly gruelling treatment - and then recovery - without money worries. I have been a member of the CIPR for many years but I hadn't realised how much support there was for members when times get tough. iprovision is a wonderful initiative"
