Airbnb.org is a nonprofit organization that works with other nonprofits, governments, and referral entities to provide people with temporary emergency housing in times of crisis.
Through current programs and former initiatives such as Frontline Stays, we’ve worked with communities to help people in times of crisis since 2012.
How Airbnb.org relates to Airbnb
Airbnb.org is an independent nonprofit organization with its own board of directors, but Airbnb covers its operating costs, so that community donations go even further to support people in times of crisis.
Airbnb.org is a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to organizations with 501(c)(3) status may be tax deductible.
