Staff Helping Staff

What is Staff Helping Staff?

Funeral expenses. Medical emergencies. When unexpected expenses like these hit, many of us are not financially equipped to deal. That's why there is the Staff Helping Staff Fund. Facilitated by the Scholarship and Fundraising committee of the ASU Staff Council, Staff Helping Staff is available to staff in need on all campuses. The fund provides a helping hand to staff members during times of need, so they may get back to the important work they do. 

A fundraising initiative was originally implemented by former Staff Council member Linda Sawyer. In conjunction with the ASU Foundation, Sawyer and other council members were able to start raising funds for staff in need.

“I was very passionate about helping to develop the program after [a staff member] told me of a friend of hers who was suffering from a painful dental problem," Sawyer said. "The individual was a single mother and couldn't afford the co-pay to have the procedure she required. I had also heard that another staff member was having trouble affording a funeral for their family member."

Thank you!

Your gift today directly benefits your colleagues and friends that you work with at ASU, to provide the support they need, when they need it. Please give now, and share this effort with three co-workers.
