Sunwing Foundation

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 is funded by the Sunwing Travel Group together with charitable donations received through Sunwing Airlines’ Spare Change Program, where every dollar raised is matched by the company. Thanks to the donations collected over the last few years, the Sunwing Foundation was able to support many projects including:

Spicy Hill Early Childhood Institution, Jamaica
In April 2015, launched its first large-scale project to build a new school in Trelawny, Jamaica, so that over 75 students and their teachers could have a welcoming and safe facility conducive for learning.

Castries Comprehensive Secondary School, Saint Lucia
In conjunction with the Canadian Government and the Ministry of Education in Saint Lucia, the Sunwing Foundation financed a major renovation project to refurbish this school that accommodates over 800 students.
 
Flying Start
Launched in early 2018, the Flying Start initiative is designed to donate reading books, backpacks and other essential school materials to ensure a successful education for children in need across the destinations we serve.
 
Help in times of crisis
The Sunwing Foundation also partners with emergency relief organizations and charities to transport necessary aid and supplies to communities affected by hurricanes and other natural disasters.
