The Sandals Foundation Board meets periodically to raise funds, consider and approve spending of those funds across the Caribbean under our focus areas of Community, Education and Environment. Projects considered for funding include those from external bodies, charities, partners and individuals as well as initiatives developed by our resorts in response to the needs of the communities they serve.
In addition in each region we have advisory boards made up of expertise such as environmentalists and social workers that we work closely with to ensure our projects are making a sustainable difference.
Our 9,000 team members across the region are the communities we serve – no one knows better than they do, the challenges faced every day in their neighborhoods. So that the board keeps it’s finger on the pulse of what is happening in our communities – special Foundation Teams made up of employees will be established at our resorts to help deliver outreach projects that we have been running for years, engage colleagues in volunteering efforts and to determine need. They will also be engaging and encouraging colleagues to play a bigger role in our everyday efforts to build and maintain great relationships with our local communities across the Caribbean.
