RP One: Teammate Assistance Fund
Updated: April 10, 2020
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, RP established a teammate assistance fund, which provides grants to RP colleagues who are experiencing significant financial hardship because of the COVID crisis. All support team members and physicians are eligible, and all RP team members have an opportunity to make voluntary contributions to this fund either with dollars or PTO hours which will converted to dollars and reserved for grants. RP made an initial matching contribution of $1 million on the first $100,000 of teammate contributions to RP One, and after the initial founding contribution, RP continues to match further teammate contributions dollar for dollar for the time being. A committee is charged with reviewing requests, verifying hardship and determining overall eligibility for and the amount of individual grants. Any excess funds remaining upon the passing of the COVID crisis will be available to support RP team members in crisis in the future. We call it RP One: One Team, Enduring Support. This new fund will allow us to give back to one another as we endure the COVID-19 pandemic and also establish a mechanism for teammate assistance in the future.
