Hardship Fund Continues to Help Employees

Funded solely by donations from Emory University’s faculty and staff, the Hardship Fund is designed to assist faculty and staff members who are experiencing a temporary financial hardship due to a catastrophic event. 

Since the application review process started in October 2010, the Fund has been able to help 27 Emory University employees, providing over $29,900 in assistance.

Cheryl, a fellow Emory employee shares her own personal account of how Emory University’s Hardship Fund helped her at a time when she needed it most.  Watch Video.

With about 17,100 employees, and only 257 contributors, the Hardship Fund must continuously raise funds. One dollar makes a difference. For just $8.34 a month you could contribute $100 a year. The more funds we raise, the more people we can help. No matter the size, every contribution makes a difference. If you haven’t yet contributed to the fund, please consider making a donation.  For more information on donating to the fund, visit www.emory.edu/hardshipfund  or contact Lisa Parker, Hardship Committee Chair.

Emory employees are able to apply for assistance through a confidential application process. Eligible applicants must be regular full or part-time employees, working at least 20 hours per week and be in good standing with a minimum of one year of service. Approval is subject to extent of need and the availability of funds.
