Review for Sandals Foundation Inc, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Working with a company with CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is good, to work with a company with working CRS like Sandals Resort International is Amazing. We own our own Travel Agency and have adopted the Sandals Foundation as our CSR. Over the past 9yrs we have had the honor to volunteer for a number of the Sandals Foundation programs, including but not limited Christmas gathers, pack a back pack for students, grand opening of schools, and even the honor of being a Sandals Foundation Care for a Kid Scholarship recipients sponsor. The Sandals Foundation has put a lot of smiles in our hearts over the last 9yrs, looking for ward to 9more, Much Love Peter and Sally

Volunteering for Sandals Foundation puts a smile in my heart with every project we help. This year Sally and I become Benefactors of HS students Soroya of Jamaica & Shaquil of St Lucia with “Sandals Foundation Care for a child Scholarship”
We adopted their $400yr scholarship to help them succeed in High School.

We love giving back through the Sandals Foundation because its a IRS approved Non Profit. 100% of every donation (scholarship) go to the program of my choice because all administrative costs are Paid by the Stewarts family Sandals Resorts International

Over 6 short years volunteers, like myself, have been witnessing the Sandals Foundation reach the goals they have been setting. Over the last few years we have witnessed how the Sandals Foundation has helped the environment and Marine life more then I thought was possible. I Remember the discussions about the possibility of Carol reef quality improving with a Marine Sanctuary in the Boscobel area of Jamaica. Now, 6yrs later, the Sandals Foundation has (2) Two Marine Sanctuaries, Boscobel and Whitehouse. The sanctuaries have grown to include the protection of sea turtle eggs and then their release with the help of volunteers and resort volunteers.
The next big excitement for me will be to learn to be a transplant volunteer of coral.
Im looking forward to seeing what comes next year.
What an amazing Foundation. When I donate $100.00, I can see the impact of every dollar of my donations.

For the past 6 years Thousands of volunteers have been supported by the unwavering Stewart family and their Sandals Resorts International as they continue to pay for all administrative cost so that every back pack filled with packed for a purpose items needed and that 100% of every dollar donated has gone to the programs and projects through out the Caribbean sponsored by the Sansals Foundation.

Being 1 of the thousand volunteers continues to put a smile in my heart. I have spoken to many young people from Jamaicians to Bahamians to Grenadia. They have told me how Sansals Foundation has saved Their lives and the lives of many of their friends.
I nominate the Sandals Foundation as a Great Non Profit.

Giving to the Sandals Foundation where 100% of my donation goes to help fund the sandals Foundation projects and programs was an important part of my decision to give to this foundation. Over the years the Sandals Foundation has proven that they are dedicated to the community, education and environment in the caribbean islands. Their leadership has been an inspiration to me to become a Sandals Foundation volunteer.

2008 feels like yesterday when I heard Adam Stewart announce the creation of the Sandals Foundation and his commitment that no administration costs would be paid by donations. 100% of all donations would go to the Sandals Foundation programs and projects and that donors could ask for their money to go to their desires. Adam then appointed Heidi Clarke as the Director of the Sandals Foundation who leads by example. I have been honored to witness all the Foundation accomplishments in the past five years. Every year knowledge and volunteer participation has grown and continues to help put smiles in our hearts. Sandals and Beaches resorts have become a household name and I project that the Sandals Foundation will become a household name soon. I am looking forward to the next five years working with the Sandals Foundation.
