The Nanny Relief Fund is a non-profit organization created in 2020 that supports nannies in times of need. Without adequate representation as an industry as a whole in Washington, there was a need for the doers of the nanny community to build something to support those in need during the current crisis, and in times of future crises. We are all in this together.
Why does the Nanny Relief Fund exist?
"Nanny Relief Fund was launched in April 2020 when the COVID-19 epidemic amplified the many inequities
in the world of domestic employees, and the lack of protections and support accessible to nannies.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over 1.1 million nannies currently working in the United States. This group is made up of 98% women (according to a survey by the International Nanny Association), has a high proportion of people of color, and represents many different countries of origin. Unfortunately, over 90% of nannies are not paid legally, or paid ‘on the books’ by their employers, and many have been critically impacted financially during this pandemic. For those nannies who are paid "under the table" or misclassified as independent contractors, unemployment, paid sick leave, and expansions of the Family Medical Leave Act are often not available. The choice of employers to not provide their employees lawful protections leaves many nannies financially vulnerable." - Nannyrelieffund.org/learn
