As the airline with Heart, Southwest is known for taking care of people today, and every day. For more than 40 years, we have championed communities by supporting the work of nonprofits and organizations all over.


Now through May 31, Employees and Customers can visit and donate to these charities dedicated to bringing life-saving materials and resources to communities impacted by COVID-19:

The love doesn’t stop there—anyone who donates $25.00 or more to one of these heroic charities will receive ten Rapid Rewards points for every dollar donated.* Points will be reflected in your Rapid Rewards account 30 to 45 days after a donation has been made.


We applaud these organizations and their relentless commitment to stand at the frontlines of this crisis and are honored to do what we can to continue supporting their missions!


Whether in the air or on the ground, we believe community is more than a place—it’s at the heart of what brings us together. #SouthwestHeartStrong
