Renovation Donation Initiative

The Renovation Donation Initiative is an industry-leading reuse program that allows IHG owners undergoing renovation to repurpose hotel furnishings and fixtures resourcefully and responsibly through donation to nonprofit organizations.

Repurpose for Good

The Association and IHG have collaborated to give owners a way to efficiently manage and repurpose removal of outgoing renovation materials while simultaneously helping their local communities. Currently in its pilot phase, the Renovation Donation Initiative allows IHG brand hotels in the U.S. and Canada that are in the process of renovation or property improvement to donate furniture, fixtures and equipment to nonprofit organizations, including United Way Worldwide and Good 360.

Owners can facilitate repurposing items such as lighting, carpeting, mirrors and beds that would ordinarily be discarded, reducing the amount of these materials reaching landfills as environmentally damaging waste. The initiative also supports the important work these non-profit organizations do in local communities, including workforce development and hospitality skills training programs. The Renovation Donation Initiative is part of True Hospitality for Good, IHG’s new program for community work and charitable giving.

Free to Members!

As a membership benefit, Association members can participate in the Renovation Donation Initiative free of charge, while non-member hotels will pay a nominal fee. Participating owners will work directly with a representative from the IHG Owners Association, who will coordinate both the pickup of items and the donation.
