A Culture of
Our company encourages a culture of giving back. Our team members are caring volunteers who are looking for ways to support their communities—whether that means spending time with kids after school, helping serve food at a local food kitchen, or giving money towards a water purification plant in India. We strive to set an example within the industry, treating every partnership as an opportunity to benefit the places we call home.
Our Focus Areas of Giving
Educational Opportunities for the Underserved
Education improves lives and strengthens families. We fund initiatives that give underserved students better educational opportunities and a greater support network as they pursue higher education. Organizations we’ve supported include Greenville Heros, which provides scholarships to the children of first responders.
From building new homes to serving meals, we demonstrate care and concern in meaningful ways to those in our communities who need a helping hand. As a company, we’ve supported Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, the Lowcountry Food Bank, and many other nonprofit organizations fighting poverty every day.
When special opportunities arise to support community initiatives outside the scope of Education and Poverty Relief, we consider each situation on a case-by-case basis.
Clean the World Partnership & Program
Discarded soap and bottled amenities left behind by guests at Auro Hotel properties now have a second life thanks to a recycling program from Clean the World that helps fight the spread of preventable diseases.
