A new way to give to EASE -

Emergency Assistance for Seattle Employees

EASE Open House

Open HouseHeartfelt thank you to Fire Chief Gregory M. Dean.  Chief Dean has been a great ally to EASE over the years.  He served as keynote speaker at this year’s Open House, sharing his belief that City employees are a family and families take care of each other.  That is why EASE exists.

Chief Dean also helped us thank  Local 27 and Local 17 for their renewed financial support.

And of course, heartfelt thanks to our dedicated volunteer bakers and crafters – you raised $700 dollars for City employees in need! 

EASE Needs You

EASE is a non-profit and 100% volunteer-run organization allowing City employees to assist fellow City employees who have experienced catastrophic circumstances and are in need of aid.  EASE is self supporting and is funded by generous contributions from YOU - City employees. Here are three ways YOU can help:

  1. Contribute through payroll deduction. Here’s a link to a brief PowerPoint that will walk you through donating via Employee Self Service. Our goal is for every employee able, to donate just $1 per paycheck!
  2. Sponsor a fundraiser for EASE within your Department or work group. Donate a basket or item to our annual online auction!  Contact us at to give.
  3. Volunteer. Email us at if you're interested in volunteering.

The Application Deadline for Assistance is 15th of each month.
