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. Open to all IHG-branded hotels across the U.S. and Canada, the Renovation Donation Initiative provides hotels in the process of renovation or property improvement a way to easily donate furniture, fixtures and equipment to nonprofit organizations.
Owners can help re-purpose items that might 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 program for community work and charitable giving.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have paused the RDI program until late summer. If you have any questions about RDI or if you are interested in participating later this year, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
If you would like to be considered for the program in the U.S. and Canada, please fill out the form.
