The American Airlines Family Fund, administered by Emergency Assistance Foundation, is a public, nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization that was created to help team members who are facing financial hardship immediately after a natural disaster or an unforeseen catastrophic situation that threaten their health and welfare. The Family Fund relies primarily on individual donations from team members and support from American Airlines to fund this program. Every contribution helps and, when combined with others, can provide a tax-free grant (USA) to help a fellow team member in need when they are facing the unexpected.
If you are experiencing a personal hardship or the effects of a qualified disaster, you can apply for a grant for financial assistance. Please read the Application FAQs to see if you qualify.
