Donations and Support

Giving Back is one of our core values at Macy’s. We show up in times of need, and we take care of the communities we’re a part of.
When our Macy’s family is the community that needs support, our colleagues always seek out ways to help take care of one another. This is the inspiration behind our North Star Relief Fund.
The North Star Relief Fund provides colleagues with rapid, direct financial assistance in times of natural disasters and other catastrophic life events. It provides an opportunity to each of us at Macy’s to help support those who are faced with unpredictable hardship, so that they can get back on their feet and continue making life shine brighter. You can learn more in our short video from Macy’s, Inc. Chairman and CEO, Jeff Gennette.  Colleagues helping colleagues – it’s a simple and inspiring concept, driven by you, and now brought to life with our Fund
