What’s New for Advisors

Sandals Foundation Updates
The Sandals Foundation, the not-for-profit philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International, launched a campaign titled Trees for Life, in honor of Earth Day on April 22. Guests across all Sandals and Beaches Resorts were invited to help plant more than 500 trees across the Caribbean in a single day. Further amplifying their mission, the resort brand accepted donations, with each $20 donation resulting in the planting and maintenance of one tree.
In June 2022, the Sandals Foundation joined forces with the Netherlands’ AFC Ajax team to launch Future Goals – a program that turns fishing nets sourced from the ocean and recycled plastic waste into soccer goals for children. Expanding opportunities for locals through the power of youth sports, particularly the beloved game known locally as football, the landmark partnership has so far succeeded in introducing soccer equipment at more than 40 schools across the island — with expansion plans underway to other Caribbean islands, including Jamaica.
