AKP Wins Legacy in Travel Philanthropy Award


Abercrombie & Kent is the proud recipient of a prestigious Tourism Cares 2016 Hearts of Travel Award, recognizing excellence in travel corporate social responsibility and philanthropy.

Abercrombie & Kent and Universal Orlando Resort share this year’s Legacy in Travel Philanthropy Award, honoring long term impact in corporate philanthropy and—new this year—recognizing the contributions of companies of different sizes and giving budgets.

The awards celebrate and share these models of corporate social change, to inspire others to start or improve their own efforts.
After an open call for nominations, 20 companies were nominated for the Legacy in Travel Philanthropy award and an award for New Innovators. The committee scored submissions in the following areas: theory of action and execution (problem statement, activities, and outcomes); community engagement; storytelling; communications and advocacy; integration into their core business; and overall financial commitment.
Keith Sproule, executive director of AKP, accepted the award at a ceremony in New York City on December 15.
