The Amazon Relief Fund was created with $25m from the e-commerce company to assist its “employees and partners”, specifically those who are responsible for the necessary task of delivering all the products consumers

“We are not and have not asked for donations and the Amazon Relief Fund has been funded by Amazon with an initial donation of $25 million. The structure to operate a fund like this, which hundreds of companies do through the same third-party, requires the program to be open to public contributions but we are not soliciting those contributions in any way,”

Although this is true concerning the structure of the fund, the rest is BS. They are not expecting sizable donations but they are content with any amount that doesn't come out of their budget. In any case, they are not bound by law to use this specific structure. They could have gone completely internal and beef up the salaries and insurance covers. Problem is that such an amendment is considered permanent for the unions and they only want temporary measures limited to the duration of the crisis. This is a lesson on corporate strategy from Amazon.
