Room to Give

Room to Give

At Choice, we understand the importance of good corporate citizenship. This understanding translates into the contributions our associates and franchisees make to our local communities every day. Around the world, Choice associates and hotel employees are active participants in their communities donating their time, energy and expertise to numerous charitable organizations.

Whether through clothing drives, helping out at a community kitchen, providing shelter to those in need or assisting in the construction of a new home for needy families, we are continually finding ways to have a positive impact on our neighbors.

Through our Giving Money and Giving Time programs, Choice matches the generous financial and volunteer contributions of our associates. In addition, Choice provides annual paid time off to encourage the volunteer endeavors of Choice associates at our corporate locations.

The Choice Hotels International Foundation oversees the company’s philanthropic giving and in recent years has donated through our Giving Grants program over $2 million to organizations that match the Foundation’s areas of focus:
  • Providing food, clothing and shelter to those in need
  • Supporting the educational efforts of schools, workforce entry organizations and the hospitality industry
  • Promoting the growth and development of tourism
At this time, we are not accepting applications for our Giving Grants program.  We genuinely appreciate your interest in our program, and we hope that you will continue to visit our website for information on when we will resume accepting applications.

Scholarship Programs
As a means of promoting and encouraging educational efforts, the Foundation funds scholarship programs for dependents of Choice corporate associates and for the Women’s Business Alliance of Choice Hotels offering all women the opportunity to begin or further their career in the hospitality industry.
