Marriott TakeCare Relief Fund

Marriott TakeCare Relief Fund

The TakeCare Relief Fund makes need-based grants available to associates at managed Marriott International locations* who are facing financial hardship immediately after a natural disaster or an unforeseen personal hardship.  The Fund relies primarily on voluntary donations from associates and guests staying on Explore rates at participating properties, as well as support from Marriott International.  Every contribution helps and, when combined with the donations of others, can provide a much needed grant to help a fellow associate in need when they are facing the unexpected.

*The program currently serves associates at Marriott U.S. managed locations. The program is also available in a growing number of non-U.S. managed locations.

**Please note that as of December 10, 2018, the TakeCare Relief Fund (TCRF) has a new fund administrator, E4E Relief LLC.  Any associates who submitted a completed application on or before December 9th will have their grant reviews conducted by the previous fund administrator, Emergency Assistance Foundation (EAF), and can access their 'in progress' applications through this link.  Please contact if you have any questions about the status of your application.

  • How We Help Open or Close

    The TakeCare Relief Fund provides need-based grants to eligible associates who face expenses resulting directly from: 

    »    Natural disasters such as earthquakes, tornados, fires, hurricanes, or floods.
    Other personal emergency events such as house fires, ruptured pipes, or death.

    There is a maximum grant amount available and the awarded grant amount will depend on the nature of the event and related expenses as well as the extent of the applicant's financial need. 

    Grants from the TakeCare Relief Fund do not require repayment. Grants must be used to pay for recovery and related temporary living expenses that are not payable (or reimbursable from) other sources such as insurance.
