The Alaska Airlines Employee Assistance Fund (EAF) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help employees who are experiencing a financial hardship due to a medical or catastrophic event. EAF is not part of Alaska Airlines, Alaska Air Group, or AFA, but is made up of employees who volunteers to serve on it’s Board of Directors and represent all divisions of Alaska Airlines. You can learn more about EAF by visiting their website at www.alaskaeaf.com.
The EAF is funded completely by volunteer contributions. Most of this funding comes from direct contributions from employees through payroll deduction, but a large portion comes from the annual EAF online auction. The auction is the single largest annual fundraising event for the EAF and makes up a significant part of it’s ability to help those in need.
How You Can Help
In preparation for the annual online auction, the EAF is seeking donations to include in this year’s auction. Items such as unused gift cards, a stay in a condo or timeshare that you own, a famous sweet or savory food item that you’re known for—almost any new or like new item is welcome! Just complete the online donation form at www.alaskaeaf.com and follow the instructions on that website to comail or drop the item off.
If you’re unable to make an auction donation, you can always sign up to contribute to EAF through payroll deduction. To sign up, log on to PeopleSoft (https://www.aagpeople.com), click on “Self Service,” then click on “Voluntary Deductions” under the “Payroll and Compensation” section.
If you have any questions about the EAF auction, please contact Sundi Rees by email at Sundi.Rees@alaskaair.com or by calling (206) 824-1665.
Please note that the Alaska Airlines Employee Assistance Fund (EAF) is a program for all employees of Alaska Airlines and separate from the AFA Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
