The Fund

The Chaplain’s Emergency fund was created to help Faculty, Staff, and Students in times of financial hardship. This includes individuals that work on the Wake Forest University Reynolda Campus, Graylyn, Wake Downtown or are employed by an outside contracted group.

The Chaplain’s Emergency Fund is made possible by the generous donations of individuals, organizations, and friends of the University. It brings us great joy to know that people’s lives are improved by the resources and support we offer, thank you for making this possible.

Holiday Assistance Request 2021

Holiday assistance is designed to help provide Thanksgiving and Christmas for WFU Employees and Contract Workers at WFU that would otherwise not have the means to provide this for their family.  Departments on campus, along with Campus Ministers and the Chaplain’s Office adopt families to make sure this happens.  Taking the stress off parents and primary care grandparents help them to continue to pay their monthly bills but still provide a little something for the holidays.  Assistance is not guaranteed and is available depending on the donations and generosity of those that are adopting families.

Apply for Holiday Assistance

Qualified non-WFU employee applicants will be sent a link to fill out a W-9. We take the needs of our community seriously and work tirelessly to ensure that those around us are taken care of.
