Idea Fair

Staff Support Program

Winner

How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?

When an employee is hit with financial hardship, he/she can apply for a loan or grant through the ANCC Staff Support Program by applying for financial assistance. The application process is confidential, and the employee application is reviewed and endorsed by ANCC senior staff and submitted to the ANCC Foundation Board of Directors for approval. The Army Navy Country Club Staff Support Program has been used to provide support for the following expenses: Urgent Medical and Dental Expenses, Basic Living Expenses, Funeral Expenses, Vehicle Expenses, Emergency Travel Child Care/Respite, Moving Expenses, and other Unforeseen Expenses.

How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?

In partnership with the Army Navy Country Club and in keeping with its charitable works mission, the Army Navy Country Club Foundation (ANCCF) established a needs-based assistance program to help our dedicated ANCC staff and their families in times of crisis. The membership responded very generously to a request for donations. As of September 20, 2021, over 500 ANCC members made donations permitting the Foundation to provide over $150,000 in tax free grants to more than 140 Army Navy Country Club employees.
