Our social mission improves lives in association with good causes worldwide. The way it works is simple. We donate $1 of every booking made here on our website to our partner charities, who work to improve the lives of people in real need around the world.
Each Signature Hotel donates $0.50 per booking, which is generously matched by our commercial partners to make a minimum $1 donation per booking. This is the least we can do. Our employees are also encouraged to opt in to a Give-As-You-Earn scheme, and we offer an optional paid day off per year for volunteering with our partner charities or with a charity an employee is personallyMeet our partners
The Goodwill Charter
We work with our hotels not only to help them grow their business, but also to optimise their efforts in giving back. The Goodwill Charter, signed by every Signature hotel, makes giving back easier by allowing them the options that best suit their business and location.
So when you stay at a Signature Hotel, here’s how you’re helping to create a fairer world:
A proportion of the revenue from a special room category at participating hotels sponsors the education of a child or young person living in poverty in the developing world.
Participating hotels offer a minimum number of apprenticeships per year for disadvantaged young people in their community, giving them the opportunity to pursue a career in hospitality.
Participating hotels commit to a Fairtrade purchasing policy, ensuring items like bedlinen, cotton towels, toiletries and minibar items are certified Fairtrade, supporting often marginalised workers.
Participating hotels commit to awarding at least 50% of product and service contracts to female entrepreneurs, and are encouraged to provide space for showcasing (and selling) their work.
Check out for Change
We believe most people would be happy to give to good causes if it were quick and easy to do so. Through Check-out for Change, we invite you to join us in giving back - and it really couldn’t be easier. With the tap of a button you can add a $1 donation* at the booking stage, or you can choose to give the same amount at check-out with an optional $1 added to your bill (you’ll always have the option to opt out if you prefer).
Check-out-for-Change helps us support the work of UN Women Global, with every $1 guest donation going directly to one of their flagship initiatives to improve the lives of marginalised women in some of the world’s poorest countries, and the Karma Foundation to sponsor a child’s education in the developing world.
So, every stay with Signature really is an opportunity for change.
*Donation currency will be US$, except in the following countries: UK: £1, EU: €1, Canada: CA$1, Singapore: S$1, Hong Kong: HK$1.
