Donate to members in need
Giving just seems to be in the blood of CSEA members. The Dorothy Bjork Assistance Fund was created to help members through tough times by providing three types of financial help: disaster, emergency and humanitarian assistance. The assistance fund doesn’t come from union dues at all —it relies solely and entirely on voluntary donations. Each February, we make an effort to replenish the Assistance Fund. Learn more about contributing to the fund and other ways to help.
