Employee-founded and led non-profit raised over $400,000 in donations since 2019
Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusives invites guests to give back to the local Aruba community through its One Dollar a Day Donation Program within the Divi Impact Foundation.
Guests at either Divi Aruba All Inclusive or Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive can donate $1, or as much as they choose, every day of their stay with 100% of the funds going directly to the Divi Impact Foundation. While the Divi Impact Foundation has chapters at all of five Divi properties in Aruba, the One Dollar a Day Donation Program is available only for guests staying at Divi Aruba All Inclusive and Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive.
In addition to the One Dollar A Day Program, employees across all the Divi Resorts properties in Aruba can participate in a paycheck contribution program. Employees can donate a minimum of $3 per paycheck to the Foundation, which is then matched by Divi Resorts and Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusives Through the One Dollar a Day and the Paycheck Contribution programs, the Divi Impact Foundation has raised over $400,000 since 2019. These funds go directly back to the greater Aruba community and benefit causes ranging from local schools, scholarship programs, food drives, green initiatives, arts and culture programming and more.
“Starting with 47 employees back in 2010, the Foundation is now comprised of over 500 employees,” shares Ricardo Vrolijk, President of the Divi Impact Foundation. “It is incredible to see the growth of our organization and the level of generosity coming from both our team members and guests. We look forward to continuing to build upon our mission of giving back to Aruba and its people.”
Founded in 2010 by a group of Divi Resorts employees, the Divi Impact Foundation was formed with the vision to inspire and motivate company leaders, owners, guests and employees to donate time, money and resources to help the community.
