Corporate Social Responsibility

At Florida Destinations, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is part of who we are, not just what we do.  We are passionate about delivering outstanding service, value, and creativity to enhance the quality of meetings and events while giving back to the industry and community that supports us.

As part of our commitment to CSR, we strive to offer dynamic solutions that deliver positive impact for both your organization and the community.

Tying charitable causes to your program is simple.


  • Add impact to your Cocktail Hour with a fun & meaningful activity.


  • Repurpose used decor elements.


  • Donate unused meeting materials.


No additional cost… just good ideas that turn into good deeds.

What we do at Home

Hospitality Harvest Initiative

Recognizing the need in our community, we sought to leverage our connections to create positive change. We knew the hospitality industry frequently disposes gently used items such as towels, bedding, and toiletries. Our connections in the community helped us identify non-profits that could benefit from these items.

Serving as the unifying change agent, Florida Destinations launched the Hospitality Harvest initiative in March 2017.  In its inaugural year, we collected and donated over 3,000 slippers, pillows, towels, and jackets. We are excited to continue to grow this initiative and to strengthen the relationship between our industry partners and the community.

Thank you to our Hospitality Harvest hotel donors:

Marriott Tampa Waterside | Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay | Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach | Westin Harbour Island

A word from Senator Scott

Dear Gina,

“Thank you for the many hours you spend as a Guardian ad Litem. Your hard work is appreciated by both the children you help and the community you inspire.
