The Sandals Foundation seeks to help fulfill the promise of the Caribbean community through investment in sustainable projects in education; environment and community which improve people’s lives and preserve the natural surroundings.
The Sandals Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International. It is the culmination of three decades of dedication to playing a meaningful role in the lives of the communities where they operate across the Caribbean
The company was borne from the ethics and philosophies of chairman, Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart who is above all a family man. Nothing means more.
To them family isn’t just the blood-ties. It is the colleagues across the four brands and corporate offices too – the Sandals and Beaches family – and since the majority of the team come from the communities it stands to reason that they do all they can to make a difference in the Caribbean – because they are family.
By definition, the responsibilities to family reflect the corporate social responsibilities. They believe things can be better and they want to make them better. They believe they have contributed much to the Caribbean over the years but they want to do more. They know that as World’s Best it’s the plans, hard work, skills and innovations that put them there – but they have a responsibility to put them to work beyond the resorts too.
The Sandals Foundation is the way of better enabling them to take on more of what needs to be done in the islands where they operate by making the Caribbean the best that they can be. It is not just about gathering and spending money. They also harness the passion, energy, skills and brand power to tackle issues under three broad headings of community; education and environment.
