WHO WE ARE
Pacific Bells and its affiliated companies recognize that our greatest asset is our people. We established the Team Member Assistance Fund (TMAF) to provide assistance to our Team Members in times of crisis.
The Mission of the Team Member Assistance Fund, as a non-profit organization, is to provide financial support to qualifying Pacific Bells, LLC and affiliate companies' Team Members who need assistance due to catastrophic or medical reasons.
The Team Member Assistance Fund (TMAF) was conceived in 2018 and put in place in 2020 to help our Team Members who may be suffering financial hardship due to a major medical or catastrophic event.
The TMAF is not a part of the Pacific Bells or affiliated group of companies. It is a separate, non-profit organization made up of Team Members who voluntarily serve on the Board of Directors. The TMAF is a 501(c)3 organization, thus all contributions are tax deductible. While not a part of those companies, the TMAF only provides assistance to the team members of Pacific Bells, LLC and affiliate companies (other franchisees and Corporate team members are not eligible).
Our goal is for every Team Member to donate $2.00 or more per paycheck, with a minimum donation of $1.00 per paycheck. Remember, only those team members who donate to the TMAF are eligible to apply for a grant under the TMAF. 100% of your donation goes to help a fellow Team Member in crisis.
Applications are strictly confidential. All assistance provided is a grant, not a loan, so it never needs to be repaid.
Besides payroll deductions, the companies have made contributions to the TMAF, as well as each of the companies’ executives. We also plan for future fundraising events to raise money for the TMAF.
