The purpose of the Amazon Disaster Relief Fund is to help Amazon employees and partners impacted by a designated natural disaster. The fund will offer eligible Amazon employees and partners in need of immediate financial assistance tax-free grants (US) administered by a third-party, Emergency Assistance Foundation (EAF). Specifically, the fund provides assistance to eligible applicants up to $3,000 through a one-time grant for expenses related to temporary housing, temporary transportation, vehicular repair, replacement of essential appliances, as well as immediate needs such as food and clothing. EAF is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, public, non-profit organization and makes the final determination on all applications. The Fund relies on support from the sponsoring organization, Amazon.
If you are experiencing hardship due to a designated natural disaster, you can apply for a grant. Please read the Application FAQ to see if you qualify.
Emergency Assistance Foundation independently administers all Fund activities and assists applicants with their grant applications when needed. The sponsoring organization, Amazon, has no visibility into individual applications or grants unless an applicant opts in to share certain details under specific circumstances.
