Helping employees around the world recover from the unexpected.

The Medtronic Employee Emergency Assistance Fund (MEEAF) was created to provide relief to employees around the world and help them recover from the unexpected. MEEAF provides needs-based financial grants to employees impacted by natural disasters, epidemics, family domestic safety, single-home damage, and bereavement.

Donate to the fund

The Fund relies primarily on individual donations from employees. Every contribution helps, and when combined with the donations of others can provide a grant to help a fellow employee in need when they are facing the unexpected. These grants help employees with food, medical costs, mortgage or rent assistance, unexpected childcare, and much more.

Please consider making an ongoing or one-time donation and applying for a 1:1 match from the Medtronic Foundation. Find out how on the Volunteer and Giving website at
