See how this fund is helping.
"I am literally in tears! Thank you so much for helping me with rent and groceries. I did not know how I was going to pay rent and feed my children with the shutdown. Thank you so much!"
"Without your office I would be on the street! Thank you for paying rent and giving me gift cards to put a present under the tree for my kids."
"I can't thank you enough for everything you have done this year through COVID and not working so much. I love working on campus with students in The Pitt but being shut down is hard. Especially with no more unemployment for us. I try finding other work but it is hard to find jobs. I'm just trying to keep my apartment and feed my kids. Thank you for helping me do that."
A note from the Chaplain’s Office
The Chaplain’s Emergency Fund was created to help faculty, staff, students, and employees of outside contracted groups in times of temporary, emergent financial hardship. Never has this Fund meant more than this year, when essential needs have been acute and abundant. Generous contributions from the Wake Forest community have put food on tables, kept families in homes, and ensured that electricity remained on for another month.
Typically, many guests who attend Wake Forest's annual Lovefeast choose to make a gift as they depart the Chapel. This, as well as other annual fundraisers, were not possible this year. No matter your distance from Mother So Dear, you can be the light in the darkness for someone who needs it.
Peace and love, Deacs.
