Effective giving involves making informed choices, being confident that your gift will make a difference, and being assured that your donation is an efficient use of your money and time.
By identifying local charities that have a natural synergy with the hospitality industry as well as investing in the future leadership of our industry, we are confident that our outreach program consistently meets the strategic goal of effective giving.
Throughout the year we organize various events and drives to support our charities, from members supporting our charities by encouraging their individual companies to support them – i.e., a dinner hosted for USA TODAY at Hope Lodge’s premises; Ritz Carlton Central Park sponsored ice cream party for Hope Lodge residents. In addition, our chapter organized a donation of unused hotel supplies from member properties for Hope Lodge.
Makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education.
Offers 60 private guest rooms in a home-like environment at no cost to patients and their families traveling to our city to take advantage of world class medical treatment. Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their families a free, temporary place to stay when their best hope for effective treatment may be in another city.
Not having to worry about where to stay or how to pay for lodging allows Hope Lodge guests to focus on the most important thing: getting well.
