In 2012, 284 employees received grants from the EAF. Of those grants, 19 went to employees who were victims of natural disasters such as Superstorm Sandy. Of these, 16 were immediate emergency grants. Emergency grants are often distributed within hours after a storm hit.
How the EAF helps
The EAF makes one-time grants of up to $15,000 to help employees pay for rent or mortgage, utilities, food and clothing, temporary shelter and more. Free legal services also are available through the EAF. They’re provided by U.S. Bank’s long-time legal partner, Dorsey & Whitney.
A heritage of caring
Supporting each other has long been a part of U.S. Bank’s heritage of caring. That’s why each April, thousands of U.S. Bank employees renew their support for the EAF during its annual fundraising campaign. U.S. Bank is proud of the positive impact the EAF has had on the lives of so many of employees.

EAF grants aren’t available to resolve ongoing general financial problems, and some income and other eligibility requirements apply. The EAF is managed and controlled by The Minneapolis Foundation, a third-party vendor, to ensure confidentiality and impartiality.
