Staff Helping Staff Fund is a financial assistance program to aid any benefits-eligible ASU staff member in need. When unexpected expenses hit, many of us are not financially prepared to manage them. The Staff Helping Staff Fund is here to help. Facilitated by the Appreciation, Development and Empowerment program of the ASU Staff Council, the Staff Helping Staff Fund program 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. Applications are reviewed and approved by Staff Council members. Amounts are up to $1,000 per application.
