The Hardship Fund

SEFA Charity Number: 65-00508

Stony Brook University recognizes that faculty and staff may experience hardships that require emergency financial assistance. The Hardship Fund is a program available to assist eligible faculty and staff who are experiencing a personal financial emergency and who have exhausted all other avenues for obtaining assistance. The fund is not a loan. It is designed to address an event or catastrophe that is non-recurring, sudden, unexpected, and critical, such as:

  • Family crisis
  • Acute illness
  • Natural disaster
  • Fire
