EMBA Emergency Fund
The EMBA Emergency Fund is fully funded by donations from employees of We Energies to assist employees who may have fallen on hard times. The EMBA offers interest-free loans and sometimes grants depending on the case. The fund is run completely through the EMBA Office and is strictly confidential.
Full-time regular employees of We Energies are eligible to apply. Initial requests should be made to Secretary Timothy Smith via email, tim. smith @we-energies.com, in writing or by telephone to +1 (414) 221-3392 explaining the nature of your emergency and how your situation came about. The keyword is "emergency." Each case is taken to the Executive Committee of the EMBA and is decided on a case-by-case basis.
There is a criteria sheet that has to be followed when applying for assistance, beginning with contacting the EMBA office first. You will be sent a Criteria sheet, and in most cases, you may be referred to Consumer Credit Counselling Services of Milwaukee, which the EMBA pays for.
