Take Note

Hardship Fund fully open for business

The launch of the Web site for Emory’s new Hardship Fund brings together the methods to donate and gets under way the effort toward raising the initial $15,000 that will provide grants to employees in need.

Donations will count toward MyEmory, the University’s fundraising campaign for faculty, staff and retirees, as part of the campaign goal. Anyone can donate to this community fund via credit card or request to be billed.

All regular full-time and part-time faculty and staff are eligible to apply. The new Web site provides the guidelines for applying for a grant for a financial hardship related to a catastrophic event beyond someone’s control and that threatens the ability to meet basic living expenses.

The program is being managed through the WorkLife Resource Center staff.
