The DRI Foundation has released its latest annual review, detailing its giving and volunteerism efforts in 2022 and 2023.
“The DRI Foundation’s mission is to provide financial, educational and volunteer aid to those who have been impacted by disasters,” said DRI Foundation President Al Berman. “It also seeks to provide help to those who wish to enter the field of resiliency by providing free training, certification, and job placement. The result is that we have changed lives.”
Among the key achievements featured in the review:
- $50,000+ given to disaster relief, rebuilding, and resilience efforts throughout the world
- 94 veterans awarded scholarships for training, valued at $282,000
- 97 pairs of women in business continuity connected via the mentorship program
- Two $5,000 college scholarships to children of DRI Certified Professionals.
One special highlight of the review details the Foundation’s efforts supporting aid to children and families in Ukraine through organizations like the World Care Center.
“The war in Ukraine has upended the lives of countless citizens in a startlingly short amount of time,” said Berman. “As a force for resilience around the world, the DRI Foundation feels a profound responsibility to help the refugees created from this conflict, particularly the children, in any way that we can.”
