"A charitable initiative established by the Hunter family, the Sunwing Foundation reflects the Sunwing Travel Group’s enduring commitment to the support and development of youth in the communities where it operates in the form of project funding or the transport of humanitarian aid. The Sunwing Foundation passes on 100% of the charitable donations it raises to the communities that need it the most, funding educational and skills development projects to provide a direct, impactful, and sustainable improvement to quality of life for years to come."
Charitable giving has always been part of the Sunwing Travel Group story. In the past, we have engaged in a variety of fundraising efforts from partnering with ONEXONE (a Canadian charity committed to improving the lives of children worldwide) on a spare change program that raised in excess of $600,000, to transporting medical supplies and water to areas in crisis.
Together with our Canadian-based airline, retail and tour operations, the Sunwing Travel Group is a direct employer of thousands of people working within our hotel and destination management services across the Caribbean, Mexico, South and Central America. Over the years, we are proud to have built up long-lasting relationships with the people we work with and the communities in which they reside.
The Sunwing Foundation has been established to effect positive change in the destinations we service. To help both present and future generations, we believe supporting youth, education and training initiatives is key. In this way, not only will we improve the quality of life of the children of today, but by empowering them to succeed and giving them positive aspirations for their tomorrow, we will also be strengthening their communities for many years to come.
