Chaplain's Emergency Fund

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.
