Employee Assistance Fund

This fund was created to provide financial support to full-time Jefferson Community & Technical College Employees in times of crisis.

  • Examples of qualifying events include (but are not limited to): illness, injury, loss of personal belongings due to natural disasters, victim of crime, or death of immediate family member (spouse/child).
  • Awards from the fund are limited to full-time employees; however, exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Staff Council.
  • The fund will be sustained through fundraising events conducted by the staff council and donations from Jefferson employees.
  • Funding requests will be reviewed by the elected members of the Staff Council.
  • Decisions will be based upon the nature of the request and availability of funds.
  • Depending on the nature of the crisis, the Staff Council may elect to conduct a fundraising benefit for an individual employee.
  • In these instances, all proceeds (minus any costs associated with the event) will be given to the employee.
  • As funding for this account will be limited, all requests may not be awarded.
