    Highlights

    • Airbnb.org is an independent nonprofit inspired by the generosity of Hosts

    • Hosts who offer free or discounted stays or recurring donations are eligible for the Airbnb.org Supporter badge

    Your ability as a Host to make people feel welcome in your space inspires us every day. We’re particularly proud of the way our Host community has supported Airbnb.org, the nonprofit established in 2020 to build on work begun by the Open Homes and Frontline stays programs.

    Since 2012, you’ve opened your homes to more than 100,000 people, including refugees, asylum seekers, essential workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, and evacuees fleeing catastrophic natural disasters around the world.

    Airbnb.org’s work is possible thanks to the generosity of Hosts who provide stays and donors who provide funding to help support people in times of crisis.

    Earning the Airbnb.org Supporter badge

    We’re celebrating the Host community’s generosity by offering the Airbnb.org Supporter badge. Hosts can support Airbnb.org and earn the badge by:

    • Signing up to host emergency stays for free or at a discount

    • Becoming a recurring donor

    Hosting emergency stays

    The Airbnb.org Supporter badge recognizes Hosts who have at least one active listing through Airbnb.org that offers free or discounted emergency stays. Offering an Airbnb.org stay means housing evacuees, refugees, or others in need of temporary accommodation in times of crisis.

    Donating on a recurring basis

    You can also earn the Airbnb.org Supporter badge by signing up to donate a percentage of your payouts to Airbnb.org on an ongoing basis. Or, if you’d prefer, you can make a one-time donation without qualifying for the badge.

    Learn more about donating from your payout.

    Getting answers to frequently asked questions

    What is Airbnb.org’s relationship to Open Homes and Frontline stays?
    In 2020, Airbnb’s Open Homes and Frontline stays programs became Airbnb.org, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Though Airbnb shares community members with Airbnb.org, the nonprofit is an independent organization with an independent board of directors.

    Where does the Airbnb.org Supporter badge appear?
    The badge appears on both your Host profile and your listing pages. If you wish to hide your badge, contact our support team.

    Does the badge impact my listing in search? 
    The badge celebrates your generous support of Airbnb.org. It does not impact how listings show up in Airbnb search results, and guests are not able to filter their searches for Airbnb.org badges at this time.

    Does the badge impact my Superhost badge or status?
    The Airbnb.org Supporter badge does not impact your Superhost badge or status. The badge will appear next to your Superhost badge.

    Will I lose the Airbnb.org Supporter badge if I opt out of Airbnb.org hosting or donating?
    Yes, but the badge will reappear if you resume hosting through Airbnb.org or donating to Airbnb.org. You can always unlist your home from Airbnb.org or pause or stop your recurring donation.

    How is Airbnb helping?
    Airbnb has committed to funding Airbnb.org’s operational costs, so all donations can go directly toward the nonprofit partners and people Airbnb.org serves.
