Staff Helping Staff Fund is a financial assistance program to aid any benefits-eligible ASU staff member in need. When unexpected expenses or emergencies hit, many of us are not financially prepared to manage them. The Staff Helping Staff Fund is here to help. Facilitated by the Scholarship and Fundraising Committee of the ASU Staff Council, the Staff Helping Staff Fund provides a resource for the dedicated staff of Arizona State University so that they may get back to the important work they do. The amount of funds available to distribute can vary and is limited. Typical award amounts are $600 - $800 per application.
