Ukraine Crisis Response Efforts


Hilton operates in areas where the risk of disaster or other catastrophic losses exist, and Hilton is deeply committed to supporting communities in times of hardship.


Hilton and the Hilton Global Foundation invest in short-term relief and long-term resiliency efforts to support communities impacted by disasters. When it comes to the community at large, the Foundation supports organizations responding to the urgent needs of community members by providing grants to nonprofits on the ground. Separate from the Hilton Global Foundation, Hilton operates a Team Member Assistance Fund that aids Hilton Team Members impacted by disaster and personal hardship situations.


Most recently, Hilton and Hilton Global Foundation have responded to the Ukraine refugee crisis and are taking the following actions in response:

  • We are donating up to 1 million room nights to support Ukrainian refugees and humanitarian relief efforts across Europe, in partnership with American Express and our community of owners.
  • We have closed our corporate office in Moscow and will ensure continued work and pay for any impacted Team Members.
  • We are suspending all new development activity in Russia.
  • We will donate any Hilton profits from business operations in Russia to the humanitarian relief efforts for Ukraine.
  • Provided emergency assistance to Team Members from Ukraine through the Team Member Assistance Fund
  • And, the Hilton Global Foundation has made contributions to World Central Kitchen (WCK) and Project Hope in support of Ukrainian refugees. Our partners at WCK are providing hot meals in Ukraine to those who have stayed as well as to refugees in Poland, Moldova, Romania, and Hungary. They are working with local restaurant partners, catering companies, and food trucks to meet the needs. Project Hope continues to be a boots-on-the-ground partner providing humanitarian assistance and emergency supplies to displaced people across the region.
