Janet Haak Brandau is the Director of Study Abroad at Minnesota State
University Moorhead. She has been a Minnesota State employee for 29 years.
In 2014 Janet’s husband, Tom, was diagnosed with cancer (Tom is a 15-year employee of Minnesota State). His accelerating care needs have nearly
depleted her paid leave balances. In addition, she was diagnosed with cancer in November and requires multiple medical visits of her own. Janet has been approved for the Vacation Donation Program and would greatly appreciate any donations she would receive. Her retirement date is January 31, 2020, but she does not have enough paid leave to cover the time off she will need until then. If you would like to donate leave to Janet Haak Brandau:
Employees who are eligible to accrue vacation may donate up to 40 hours
of unused vacation each fiscal year.
