Catastrophic Leave Donation Drive

The Catastrophic Leave Bank Program assists eligible University of Arkansas employees through medical emergencies, injuries, and illnesses incurred by them or eligible family members after the employees exhaust their earned sick leave, annual leave, holidays, and compensatory time. During fiscal year 2010, 31 University employees received assistance from this program. Human Resources will conduct a donation drive for this program during the month of November 2010.

Information and donation forms are available from your departmental leave representative and on the Human Resources web page at Only 100% appointed employees are eligible to participate in the Catastrophic Leave Bank Program. Donations are strictly voluntary and employees do not need to be donors to participate in the program. Donations must be made in one-hour increments and may not exceed a total of 32 hours per plan year. In addition, a donation cannot be accepted if it would reduce the combined sick and annual leave balances of the donor to less than 80 hours. Leave donations are only accepted during donation drives or at an employee’s end of employment.

If you would like to donate to the Catastrophic Leave Bank, please contact your departmental leave representative to obtain a donation form or download the form from our webpage. Your completed donation form should be given to your department leave representative NO LATER THAN November 30, 2010.

If you have questions about the program, please call ext. 57618 or e-mail
