Learn more about your impact

When you support Staff Helping Staff, you're alleviating financial burdens from unexpected expenses for staff members. The funding initiative was originally implemented by a former staff council member who saw it as a priority to help staff members struggling to make ends meet after a crisis or health concern. Many of us are not financially equipped to deal with unforeseen expenses, and your generosity reminds staff in need on all campuses that they're not alone.

The success of our university and the futures of our students rest squarely upon the shoulders of our staff members here at ASU. Working tirelessly to ensure metrics are met and people are seen and heard is a demanding proposition for most, but ASU’s staff members meet that challenge head on. The Staff helping Staff fund started by a former staff member, extends financial gifts to assist staff members at times struggling to make ends meet during crisis situations. Your generous gift, through this fund will ensure a staff member is given the help they need when they need it most."
