The Cox Family Assistance Fund, also known as the employee crisis fund, was founded by former CoxHealth CEO Larry Wallis and his wife Pat. This fund was their way of saying thank you to CoxHealth employees for their dedication to their jobs, patients and co-workers. The goal is to provide support during a defined time of crisis. The fund is not for every day household expenses or daily living costs. Please consider applying if your crisis is related to:
- Loss of income due to a major medical occurrence
- Loss of income due to the death of a spouse or child
- Loss of home due to natural disaster such as flooding, tornado or fire
- Loss of income due to a situation that is entirely out of your control
Please read the attached policy for a complete description of qualifying events. An application, supervisor recommendation, explanation of need and a copy of your last pay stub is required to apply. Upon receipt of all of these items the application will be sent to the employee committee for review and decision. NO application will be processed without all requirements. A W9 form must also accompany your application. If approved the W9 is needed to process your grant check. For more information call the CoxHealth Foundation at 417-269-7150.
All applications must be accompanied by a W9 form
Thank you to all the CoxHealth employees who generously donate to this fund each year as a part of the Employee Giving to help sustain this fund for future employees.
