SCBWI Emergency Fund


The SCBWI has an Emergency Fund for its members who are suffering a temporary hardship due to health issues, national emergencies or natural disasters. It is funded by SCBWI Headquarters, and by your donations to the SCBWI Tribute Fund.

If you would like to send a donation to help your colleagues in this time of crises, please do so at the Tribute Fund page.

If you need to apply for an emergency stipend, please go to the Emergency Fund.

Your request will be sent immediately to our Emergency Fund Committee of the Board of Advisors.

There is a maximum limit of $1500.
