With a focus on environment or youth education and development, Hyatt Community grants are awarded to charities providing meaningful and vital services to the communities in which our associates live and work.
Since the program’s inception in 2008, Hyatt Community has awarded more than $700,000 to 62 charities in 57 cities across 16 states and 24 countries. Projects ranged from large-scale development programs to localized grassroots initiatives. At the end of December 2010, Hyatt Community in partnership with 19 hotels awarded more than $270,000 in grants to 20 noteworthy nonprofits around the world. From Atlanta to Berlin and Jakarta to Mumbai, Hyatt properties nominated incredible causes for support.
At the Hyatt Regency Kinabalu, a $15,000 grant will be used to rebuild a youth shelter near the hotel, allowing local students, who currently travel 3 hours to and from school each day, to spend weeknights at the school instead of having to return home. Other Hyatt Community projects include Park Hyatt Saigon’s support of two early childhood education centers and Hyatt Regency Bellevue’s environmental cleanup and restoration efforts along the Cedar River Watershed.
With the ongoing success of this grant program and the growing desire of our hotels to give back, Hyatt remains dedicated to this philanthropic initiative to build and support vibrant, healthy communities.
