The Staff Appreciation Fund is a campaign led by the Staff Appreciation Fund Committee as part of the Residents’ Council with assistance from the Philanthropy Department. This campaign is a wonderful way for residents to reward hourly, non-exempt employees for a job well done. Contributions can be made to the fund at any time of the year. Monies are split (based on tenure) among the hourly, non-exempt employees, and distributed in early December each year. Because gifts to the Staff Appreciation fund are considered a gratuity, they are not tax deductible.
