Our Program: Sands Cares
More than just philanthropy, Sands Cares manifests our dedication to working hand-in-hand with our communities to inspire positive impact. Through Sands Cares, we integrate corporate giving, nonprofit capacity building and Team Member volunteerism to address the priorities we’ve identified in our communities.
We extend our hospitality leadership by being a good corporate citizen that helps our communities solve problems and capitalize on opportunities. Through philanthropic giving to nonprofit organizations, we address important social issues and support people in need.
A core focus of Sands Cares is helping build the capability of nonprofit partners to advance their programs and goals. We help them address growth opportunities and serve as a catalyst to support their development.
Our volunteer program extends our service in the community and helps our nonprofit partners advance their missions, while providing opportunities for Team Members to make a difference and develop their skillsets.
We have identified a set of priority issues that are most important to our communities.
