We Serve the Places Westgate Calls Home

We partner with great nonprofits in all of our resort communities nationwide to support our Strong Families | Strong Workforce mission.

Message From Our Founder

At Westgate, we put family above everything else. We created our Foundation to do two things—to take care of the families who work for us and the families who call each of our resort communities home. Work is important, but how it allows us to provide for our own families and how we can positively impact our communities together, as a bigger Westgate family…that will always come first.

The Westgate Resorts Foundation was created in 2001 to guide our community and nonprofit partnerships and to help our Westgate Team Members during an emergency. Our active, hands-on approach to community engagement goes beyond grant-making and advocacy to creating partnerships with the nonprofits who are experts in the areas of family and youth homelessness, domestic violence, education, and veteran employment. 

Economic-development experts show that these four focus areas are key to employment and self-sufficiency. But more to the point, our Team Members…more than 11,000 strong…tell us that these barriers are critical to break through so we all can show up to work, equipped and ready to grow.

Strong Families | Strong Workforce. These four simple words highlight our focus on a big goal: to give people the opportunities, skills and support they need. We help our neighbors and colleagues remove distractions that can overwhelm and weigh us down, so we can provide for our loved ones and encourage each other as we care for our families.

After all, we are in the hospitality business and it’s in our hearts to serve our guests and each other…and to champion career opportunities in the industry we love.
