The Power of Hope

Thank You

Through our commitment we have been able to impact so many more lives across the Caribbean. The Sandals Foundation Annual Report contains some highlights from the 2018 to 2020 period in each of the Education, Community and Environment sectors.

View Report

In its simplest form, to inspire is defined as the action or power of moving intellect or emotions.
We, the Sandals Foundation, believe that the action of inspiring hope is a force that can move mountains.

The Sandals Foundation is a non-profit organization launched in March 2009 to help Sandals Resorts International continue to make a difference in the Caribbean. All costs associated with administration and management is supported by Sandals International so that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly towards funding impactful and meaningful initiatives within the key areas of Education, Community and Environment.

Our promise

Community

Empower Lives

We create and endorse initiatives that engage and inspire people through skills training, sports, health initiatives which help to tackle complex social issues head-on to strengthen communities.
