CFFK recently received a generous $3,960 donation from the Key West Marriott Beachside as part of our Business Partner in Paradise Program. Through the program, one dollar from every guest staying at the Marriott Resort throughout the year is donated to CFFK for programs to benefit our Keys’ culture, environment and more.
“Marriott Beachside is pleased to be a long-time Business Partner in Paradise with the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys,” says Stephanie Wiese, Director of Hotel Operations for Marriott Beachside. “Our company and our guests recognize the importance of our beautiful environment and unique culture and are pleased to support CFFK’s important work to preserve and protect these amenities in our community.”
The Business Partner in Paradise Program with local hotels, guesthouses and other visitor-related businesses, provides the opportunity for guests to make voluntary donations (typically $1 per guest/visit) to support CFFK programs to benefit nonprofit organizations and residents throughout the Keys. Since 2015, CFFK has been a recipient of Marriott Beachside’s guest voluntary donation program, which the resort originated a number of years ago.
Special thanks to the Marriott Beachside for their support and to all their guests for making a difference in the Keys.
