CHAPTER EIGHT: EMPLOYEE SERVICES AND PRIVILEGES

8.3 Benevolent Fund

A unique and important part of our community at Westmont is the opportunity to support and minister to each other. This service can take many forms including prayer, encouragement, friendship and loving admonition. The college wants to help support employees when they experience temporary financial hardships. The college also wants to provide an alternative to direct solicitation of employees by other employees.

The Westmont Benevolent Fund is available to assist any employee experiencing a significant temporary financial hardship. This is a taxable benefit. Employees who know of a need that they believe should be considered should discuss it with their supervisor or contact the Human Resources office, which acts as facilitator to bring such needs before the Executive Team for their review. Anyone may make a tax-deductible contribution to this fund by directing a designated gift to the Office of College Advancement.
