What is the ShipBob Giving Fund?

The ShipBob Giving Fund ("SGF") was established to support associates working within our fulfillment center network. These associates provide the fulfillment of essential goods for millions of people across the United States and around the world.

To immediately support associates experiencing financial hardship during COVID-19 (Coronavirus), ShipBob has funded the first $20,000 and we have received another $33,235 from fellow employees, investors, and partners. This is set aside for those working through issues including schools shutting down, businesses closing, and health concerns.

This fund will remain in perpetuity long after COVID-19 to support associates who need to bridge that financial gap through extreme situations.

I'd like to donate. How do I help and what is the minimum?
Please access the donation form through this page. There is no minimum on donation size. In fact, a research report produced by the Annie E. Casey Foundation cited a finding that the ability to borrow $500 in an emergency can do as much to reduce hardship as tripling family income.

How will all funds and donations be used?
100 percent of donations will go to support SGF and our mission to provide assistance to associates experiencing financial hardship as a result of these unforeseen events. ShipBob covers all costs of administering the program. For any questions, please contact us at

Yes, payments from the fund will not be taxable to the beneficiary. Please consult your tax advisor for further questions.
