The extraordinary generosity of FICP members and hospitality partners has garnered significant charitable giving and countless hours of volunteerism to multiple charities over the years.
Past FICP philanthropic initiatives have benefitted Junior Achievement® (JA), an organization which promotes education, supports students interested in the travel and tourism industry, and Global Giving, a large crowdfunding community that helps donors to make safe and easy donations to vetted, locally-driven organizations around the world while providing local organizations the tools, training and support they need to become more effective.
The 2018 FICP Silent Auction will benefit three charitable organizations, all local to the Orlando area. United Against Poverty, Orlando Health – Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida have been selected to receive proceeds from FICP’s 17th Annual Silent Auction. In addition to the funds raised through the auction, attendees at this year’s Annual Conference will participate in a CSR networking activity where toys and other items will be assembled and donated to these same organizations. Additional information about Silent Auction donations and bids is available here.
At the 2017 Annual Conference, funds raised through the Silent Auction resulted in donations of $27,705.49 to Junior Achievement® (JA) of San Diego and $41,558.24 to GlobalGiving. Due to recent natural disasters, the FICP Board of Directors unanimously agreed to redirect some of this year’s Silent Auction proceeds to support disaster relief efforts.
