SUAA Foundation Emergency Assistance Program

The SUAA Foundation Emergency Assistance Program is designed to help chapters provide support for members who are facing a sudden need for funds to cope with a crisis situation. Chapters may request assistance of up to $1,500 on behalf of individuals who have been SUAA members for 5 years or more.

A. Required - Write a Cover Letter
In the cover letter, please tell the Evaluation Committee about the situation for which your member needs our financial assistance. Describe what over-all aid the member is requesting, how it will be used, and what the chapter is doing to help. Include whether insurance will be available to cover some of the costs.

B. Required - Fill Out the Questionaire
On the questionaire, summarize what funds are needed, how they will be used, and what the chapter and its members are contributing to assist the applicant.

Some grants can be subject to taxes. If the funding is approved, the SUAA Foundation Treasurer may need the recipient's Social Security number and other data for our records. Send the completed form and cover letter to SUAA FOUNDATION.

C. Required - Follow-up on Grants Given
The Foundation's Emergency Assistance Awards to members are channeled through the President and/or Treasurer of the member's SUAA Chapter. To assist the Foundation in periodic program evaluation, a month after the dispersal of funds, the Chapter officers will be asked for follow-up information:
A) How were the funds used by the member?
B) What was the impact of the funds on the member's emergency?
C) Can you suggest improvements in the procedures of the Emergency Assistance Program?
