Join the Village Employees Benefit Fund (VEBF) in thanking the dedicated POA frontline workers who make Hot Springs Village a wonderful place to live: the hard-working hourly employees of the POA. Your donation to the Village Employees Benefit Fund reflects your respect and appreciation of the hard-working hourly employees of the POA—the line staff, the workers who groom our golf courses, collect our trash, maintain our roads and buildings, pump water into our homes, operate our wonderful facilities, patrol our streets, extinguish our fires, and yes, process our sewage.
While earning minimum wage, they do a great deal to make the Village run smoothly and to be a beautiful place to live. Your contribution will help grow the Fund ensuring that line employees receive a bonus at the end of the year in recognition of their service.
90% of donations received are used for the benefit of our POA hourly workers, including the year-end cash appreciation gift, the emergency fund, and the Continuing Education Fund.

The Hot Springs Village Property Owner’s Association employs hundreds of full- and part-time workers to meet all the challenges any municipality faces, from water treatment to policing, from golf course maintenance to trash collection, and everything in between.
These employees, not their managers, are the beneficiaries of the Village Employees Benefit Fund. In early December, just in time for the holidays, the year-end cash appreciation gifts are personally delivered to POA workers by VEBF board members on behalf of appreciative Villagers who have donated to the fund. These year-end cash appreciation gifts enable our workers to supplement their incomes at a time when budgets are typically strained to meet home heating and other holiday expenses.
Please note: The VEBF is not affiliated with the POA, and our benefits are separate from any employee benefits provided by the POA. The fund’s board would like to recognize the contribution of the POA Human Resources Department in providing the assistance the Fund needs to accurately disburse our year-end gifts to our deserving workers.
It may be a little “over the top” to say that nothing happens in Hot Springs Village until a POA employee comes to work. But just think about it. No round of golf gets played, no trash gets picked up, no concert is performed, no tennis or pickleball court is maintained, no water and sewage gets processed, until a POA employee comes to work. It’s just that simple.
Many Village residents are happy to contribute annually to the VEBF because they recognize the value our employees bring to our daily lives here in what almost everyone considers one of the best communities to live anywhere in the country.
The VEBF uses your donations to provide a year-end cash appreciation gift as a bonus to POA full- and part-time hourly employees at the lowest end of the pay scale. The VEBF bonus is the only cash award they will receive.
We represent you and your expression of gratitude to the employees. They all know and appreciate the fact that donations come from residents and local businesses. Any donation you can make to the VEBF will make a difference for an employee, will stay in the community, and will say thanks to the workers who serve us so well.
Because nothing happens in Hot Springs Village until a POA employee comes to work.
