We support communities around the world through volunteerism and charitable giving from our company, colleagues, owners and guests, as well as through the Hyatt Hotels Foundation. In addition to year-round volunteerism, our collective impact is magnified during our Global Month of Service, when Hyatt colleagues around the world give back locally. Our giving supports education, career readiness, wellbeing and environmental conservation projects.
When disasters strike in communities where we operate, we help those communities and colleagues to recover, rebuild and thrive again. We team up with the American Red Cross and Mercy Corps to respond quickly and deliver financial assistance, while internal fundraising provides additional support to colleagues when possible.
Hyatt’s headquarters and more than 20 Hyatt hotels are located in the Chicago area and we take great pride in our hometown.
- Since 2015, Hyatt has two adopted schools in the Back of the Yards community, a low-income, at-risk neighborhood, and supports them through school supplies and holiday gift drives, career workshops, job shadow days and other fundraising projects.
- Hyatt also provide internships, mentoring, tutoring, career readiness workshops and employment opportunities to young adults across Chicago. Through partnerships with organizations including Year Up Chicago, Salt & Light Coalition, Skills for Chicagoland’s Future, City Year Chicago, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Chicago, Chicago Urban League and Urban Alliance.
