Requests Share the Dough does not cover:

Qualifying emergencies do not include rent or mortgage payments, circumstances that involve providing assistance to pay for debt consolidation, poor financial planning, non-essential items (i.e. cable TV, credit card payments, utility bills, etc), bail, garnishments, or other expenses deriving from non-emergency situations. Additionally, we love our pets, but we want to reserve funds for our most important part of our team – our people. For employees who drive for the company, Share the Dough does not cover wear and tear expenses for personal vehicles (as this is covered in your mileage payments) or car expenses for employee’s who have insurance coverage below the company’s minimum required policy. Extreme financial hardship and emergency situations not included in the Eligibility Requirements may be considered on a case-by-case basis. 

The Share the Dough Board of Director’s and Review Committee reserve the right to change its operating policies and procedures at any time in accordance set forth in its bylaw.
