Compassionate Donation

Compassionate Donation is a method by which one employee may donate earned time or annual leave to another employee who needs extended time off from work due to his or her own serious health condition or that of an immediate family member, and who has exhausted or will exhaust all applicable paid time off.  Compassionate Donation is donated directly to an individual in need; it is not donated to a common donation bank. 

 In the event that the employee exhausts all applicable paid time off, University employees may want to donate some of their accumulated earned time or annual leave to help ease the burden of the employee who would otherwise need to take time off from work without pay.
