Earlier this year, Gundersen employees were surveyed to help select a name for the new employee emergency fund. The votes are in and the winning name is most appropriate: Employees Helping Employees.

As the fund's new name implies, it is supported by Gundersen employees who donate to help fellow Gundersen employees hit by financial emergencies. It is designed to help cover costs that an employee may struggle to pay during an emergency, such as housing, utilities, expensive repairs or medical expenses.

Gundersen Medical Foundation created the Employees Helping Employees Emergency Fund to offer employees a hand up in times of personal crisis. That's because a substantial financial crisis can put added stress on work, family and health.

For those in need

This fund is open to employees who have worked at Gundersen at least six months and work 20 hours a week or more.

Anyone wishing to apply for a grant of up to $1,000 from the Employees Helping Employees Emergency Fund should contact the Gundersen Health System Employee Assistance Program. Applicants meet with an EAP consultant to determine eligibility and receive help connecting with other community resources as needed. Applications are reviewed by an anonymous committee.

If you'd like to support Gundersen employees and the Employees Helping Employees Emergency Fund, please donate online. Select "Employees Helping Employees Fund" from the drop-down menu when designating your gift.
