Good Culture has been established as a non-profit designed to raise money to provide assistance to hospitality workers affected by the economic shutdown caused by the coronavirus crisis. In addition to the immediate crisis, Good Culture anticipates providing assistance to hospitality workers in need after the crisis as well. Good Culture anticipates providing grants to assist with basic necessities on a short-term basis for hospitality workers in need. Grants by Good Culture will most often be in the form of gift cards to grocery stores and gas stations or the use of free hotel rooms.
- “Hospitality Worker” is defined as: Any individual who currently or most previously was employed by a restaurant, bar, caterer restaurant group, hotel, or hotel group.
- Good Culture will accept applications for assistance from Hospitality Workers who plan to re-enter or remain in the industry; who are of the age of legal majority; who reside in the Huntsville, AL, Orlando, FL, or Charlotte, NC areas; who make under $50,000/year; and who worked for their most recent employer for a minimum of ninety days.
- Applicants will be required to submit a paystub from their most recent employment to verify residency, pay and length of employment. Applicants must submit a copy of a recent paystub or other evidence of employment during the relevant time period in the hospitality industry.
- Once Good Culture has received a completed application and evidence of employment, it will make grants as donations will allow. All grants are made at the discretion of Good Culture on a first-come, first-served basis.
