Philanthropy

As a hospitality company, service is in our roots, and we’re committed to improving the lives of future generations around the world. Throughout our company, we align our giving, in-kind support and volunteerism on three areas: conservation, education and wellness. Our philanthropy captures the passion and commitment of Wyndham Worldwide associates, leadership, and business partners to make lasting, meaningful contributions in the communities where we operate.

The Wyndham Worldwide Foundation

The Wyndham Worldwide Foundation reflects our core commitment to developing and supporting our communities with a focus on improving the lives of future generations. The Wyndham Worldwide Foundation is dedicated to supporting organizations with similar values through contributions to signature charities, as well as local non-profit organizations in key Wyndham markets across the globe.

Global Philanthropic Partnership

In 2016, Wyndham Worldwide began a global philanthropic partnership with Save the Children, the leading global non-profit organization focused exclusively on the wellbeing of children around the world. Through this collaboration, Wyndham Worldwide supports Save the Children across our corporate locations around the world with workplace giving events, disaster relief and emergency fund raising, and promotion of the Save the Children signature child sponsorship program. 

Volunteerism & Donations

Giving back is part of Wyndham Worldwide’s culture of service, and every year thousands of our associates volunteer for recognized charitable organizations during a paid day off, which in 2015 resulted in nearly 36,000 volunteer hours. In addition, our associates routinely lead fundraising efforts for recognized charitable organizations on the global, national, and local levels.
