The bequest funds from Mr. DiStefano’s estate are held in the Direct Relief Foundation, a separate legal nonprofit organization overseen by a Board of Trustees, which is composed of current directors and former board chairs of Direct Relief. Its sole mission is to support Direct Relief.
Funds from the Direct Relief Foundation are transferred to Direct Relief to pay fundraising expenses. This allows all incoming donations to be used for activities related to the organization’s humanitarian operations.
