Employee Emergency Fund
Emergency Support for Ohio State Faculty and Staff

Natural disasters and other emergencies often happen without warning. These devastating life events include floods, fires and tornadoes. These emergencies bring immediate and devastating financial hardships to Buckeyes and their families. When these or other personal emergencies happen to our fellow faculty and staff, we want to be able to help make their lives a little easier as they recover.

 

Your support of the Ohio State Employee Emergency Fund enables us to provide one-time financial assistance to faculty and staff members facing an immediate, severe, temporary financial hardship due to an emergency. The financial assistance that is offered by the Employee Emergency Fund is a defined amount and approved by a committee.

 

Your gift will help Ohio State faculty and staff rebuild and recover from emergencies. 

 

Are you staff or faculty? You can make your gift via payroll deduction
