The UAB Benevolent Fund campaign is under way, giving employees the chance to be a HERO in its campaign of “Health and Education Reaching Out” through May 8.
The Benevolent Fund enables employees to help those in need on this campus and in the Birmingham area. UAB faculty and staff contributions in 2007, the fund awarded $150,056 to 138 UAB employees in various crisis situations through the Employee Emergency Assistance Program. And, because of the donations employees make to the UAB Benevolent Fund, community organizations also receive support from UAB faculty and staff.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to consider contributing at a level appropriate for them. Some common contributions include:
• one-hour’s pay per month (just 12 out of 2,080 hours for a full-time employee)
• 1 percent of annual pay per month
• a continuous fixed amount each month
• a one-time payroll deduction or gift by check
