The WBCA Benevolent Fund was established by the WBCA Board of Directors in March 2018 to assist member coaches who experience financial hardship through no fault of their own, such as when an assistant coach loses their job solely as a result of a change in the head coach where they work. The fund is managed by a five-member committee composed of retired coaches and administrators who accept and review applications for assistance from member coaches, and determine if financial assistance is needed and, if so, how much. Financial assistance may be in the form of grants or loans.
The fund will be seeded through annual contributions by the board of directors from the WBCA's reserves. Individuals may also make tax-deductible donations to the fund.
