IHG® Foundation

The positive impact of our award-winning corporate responsibility programmes led to the launch of the IHG Foundation in February 2016.

Circle of people

The IHG Foundation works to set the foundations for stronger, healthier, more prosperous communities around the world.

The foundation is committed to helping communities develop hospitality skills, ensuring support for those impacted by disasters, facilitating local community investment and protecting the environment.

Hospitality skills development

The IHG Foundation provides support to community organisations and education providers to tackle key social challenges and break down the barriers that many individuals face in accessing employment and to help them build their knowledge and skills in the hospitality industry.

International disaster relief

The IHG Foundation helps local communities when they need it the most, providing support when disaster strikes to help them get back on their feet and to be better prepared for future disasters.

Local community investment

The IHG Foundation collaborates with local organisations working hard to develop communities around the world where we can all prosper, creating better places for us all.

Environmental sustainability

Mindful of the impacts the hospitality industry has on the environment, the IHG Foundation provides support for organisations developing opportunities to do things differently to preserve scarce resources and help create a more sustainable future for everyone.
