What is the Sandals Foundation
AND WHAT ARE WE ALL ABOUT?
The Sandals Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International. It is the culmination of four decades of dedication to playing a meaningful role in the lives of the communities where we call home across the Caribbean.
To us, the Sandals and Beaches family includes more than just our team members across our resort brands and corporate offices… it reaches far wider to the local communities which is where our 15,000+ team members live. That’s why we do all that we can to make a positive difference in the region – because we’re family!
We understand that our plans, hard work, skills and innovations have made made our resorts the World’s Best, but we have a responsibility to use these principles to carry the work beyond our resorts, too. By contributing through community outreach programs in the Caribbean, we hope to make our corporate social responsibilities reflect our responsibilities to our family.
The Sandals Foundation is our way of better enabling us to take on more of what needs to be done in the islands where we operate by making the Caribbean the best that we can be. We also harness our passion, energy, skills and brand power to tackle issues under three broad headings, Our Community Our Education Our Environment.
