Staff Advisory Council hears presentation on Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund

Bob Baker, senior associate vice president, University Advancement, made a presentation to the Staff Advisory Council, recently, on the Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund.  In March, the fund was created with an initial $500,000 goal to assist Wake Forest students and others (including staff and faculty) affected by COVID-19.

Baker explained that the fund is flexible and can be used to address a wide variety of needs, including:

  • Housing, meals, family care and basic necessities
  • Support for international students unable to return home
  • Continuing pay for those experiencing reduced work hours
  • Safety equipment for on-campus employees in housing and food service

A small group of University leaders has been formed to make allocations.

President Nathan Hatch and his wife, Julie Hatch, have made a gift of $100,000 to aid in the effort.  To learn more about the fund and how to contribute, you may visit the Crisis Response Fund website.
