What is Airbnb.org?
Airbnb.org is an independent, publicly-supported nonprofit organization that partners with nonprofits to provide people with emergency housing in times of crisis.
Through the Airbnb Open Homes and Frontline stays initiatives, Airbnb has worked with communities to help people in times of need since 2012. Now, Airbnb is establishing Airbnb.org as an independent organization to build upon these efforts and help even more people.
Airbnb.org is an independent organization with an independent board of directors. It’s an approved tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to organizations with 501(c)(3) status may be tax deductible.
Airbnb is covering the operating costs of Airbnb.org so community donations go further in supporting people in times of crisis.

The Airbnb community can support Airbnb.org by hosting or by donating. Hosts can choose to host Airbnb.org stays for free or to donate a percentage of each payout. These hosts will get an Airbnb.org supporter badge on their profiles. Anyone can give a one-time donation to Airbnb.org at any time.
