SAC contributes to Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund

In lieu of holding the University’s annual Staff Appreciation Picnic, the Staff Advisory Council (SAC) has donated $25,000 to the Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund.

Organized by the SAC and in partnership with the Office of Wellbeing, the picnic originally had been planned for June 2 on Manchester Plaza.  It has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Established in late March, the fund is intended to help students, faculty, staff and contract employees facing personal hardship due to COVID-19.  Efforts are underway to raise $1 million for the fund.

Donations to the fund may be made directly or through Wake Forest payroll deduction.  To donate via payroll deduction, donors can use this form, and manually enter their deduction gift.  It is important to enter “Crisis Response Fund” as the designation in the “Other” section.

More details are available on the fund’s website.
