Fuyao Launches Hardship Fund through The Dayton Foundation to Assist Employees In Times of Need

The Dayton Foundation is pleased to announce that Fuyao Glass America, Inc., (FGA) has established the Fuyao Glass America Hardship Fund, the first employee hardship relief fund created through The Dayton Foundation. The fund will provide financial assistance grants directly to FGA employees during times of hardship or disaster.

Established by a contribution from Fuyao, the fund will provide a structured way for FGA to help employees to get back on their feet after experiencing financial difficulties due to situations such as the loss or destruction of a personal residence, medical expenses caused by severe illness or accident or death of an employee’s immediate family member.

“The Dayton Foundation is proud to help Fuyao Glass America, Inc., provide this benefit to their employees,” said Michael M. Parks, president of The Dayton Foundation. “As we all know, emergencies and hardship can strike suddenly. The Fuyao Glass America Hardship Fund will help one of the region’s largest employers to offer charitable support to its employees and their families when it is needed most.”

Eligible employees can submit an application for a one-time grant ranging from $500 to $3,000. Grants will be awarded on an as needed basis and approved by an independent selection committee appointed by The Dayton Foundation.

“In the past year, in collaboration with other nonprofit organizations in the community, including Red Cross, United Way, The Foodbank, House of Bread and Ronald McDonald House of Charities, we reached out to help our communities,” said Sunny Sun, Chairwoman of Fuyao International. “In appreciation of the tremendous efforts and contributions by our employees, we, in cooperation with The Dayton Foundation, established the Fuyao Glass America Hardship Fund. We hope the Hardship Fund will provide the much-needed support to our employees when they face unexpected setbacks.”

The fund was announced to FGA employees on Friday, December 15, at a FGA Christmas party. Individuals seeking more information can contact Lei Shi at
