Danforth Center Cares is an employee-funded, employee-administered initiative to support full-time, part-time, and contracted colleagues who are suffering as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, or other emergency situations.
Danforth Center Cares was started by a group of employees who believe in the importance of living the Danforth Center values and is an effort to share resources, thereby strengthening others, and ultimately creating a more compassionate, dedicated, and effective workplace.
Grants from Danforth Center Cares may be used to fill a gap when a community member is faced with an unexpected financial hardship. These may include health insurance premiums, an unexpected bill, or living expenses for a family who is experiencing exceptional challenges.
Full-time, part-time, or contracted employees of at least 30 days are eligible to make requests. Grants are one-time only, except in extraordinary circumstances, and as funding allows. Payments will be made as soon as possible. All requests will be considered in the strictest confidence.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us. Thank you for being part of our community.
Care Team: Dana Benedicktus, Terri Burton, Noah Fahlgren, Todd Hornburg, Andrew Witthaus
