The University of Oregon Employee COVID-19 Relief Fund has provided financial assistance totaling $52,200 to 111 employees. With a little over $5,000 remaining in the fund, applications continue to be accepted.

Additional charitable donations from university employees and other individual donors have been made to the fund since it began on July 28 with an initial $50,000.

“Thanks to the generous contributions from UO employees and donor gift funds, we were able to provide support and assistance to our colleagues in a time of need,” said Mark Schmelz, chief human resources officer.

Program details are outlined on the HR website including employee eligibility and qualifying expenses. UO community members can make charitable donations online through DuckFunder.
