Donating to the Hospitality Relief Fund enables us to quickly help those most in need.
Help Our Team
The Hospitality Relief Fund was created by the Indiana Restaurant and Lodging Association to give back to employees of the hospitality industry who are reeling in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and who were among the first to face economic fallout. A recent study expects from 49,000 to 109,000 Indiana hospitality workers—or up to 37% of the state’s total hospitality workforce—could lose jobs by the end of the year because of the pandemic. These are workers who have bartended, bell-hopped, worked check-in, served food, waited tables, washed dishes, and cooked meals for Hoosiers for years.
Your donation will make a difference in the life of an individual who has lost a paycheck by no fault of their own. You can help someone avoid going into debt, help pay their rent or mortgage, utility bills or help them put food on the table for their families.
We hope you join us in this endeavor to give back to those who have long offered hospitality to our communities. They have dedicated their careers to serving Hoosiers and now, we must return the favor.
If you are an adult (18+) who has worked on a part-time or full-time basis in the hospitality industry in Indiana for at least 90 days in the last year, you are eligible for consideration for a one-time $500 relief grant.
