Engaging for a better world
A foundation to educate and empower Engage attendees' philanthropic efforts and leave a positive footprint wherever we gather.
The Engage! Foundation is a charitable organization created to provide financial aid and support to event professionals seeking to make a positive impact in our global community.
The foundation operates as a means to educate attendees and raise awareness about non-profit work being done by event professionals, including opportunities to donate time, money, or services. Some examples of these fantastic non-profits include, The Birthday Party Project, Wish Upon a Wedding and the Confetti Foundation- all organizations run by fellow Engagees.
At each conference, the Engage! Foundation strives to leave a positive local footprint by providing gifting with locally sourced products from regional artisans and entrepreneurs.
The Engage! Foundation is also committed to adopting a local charity and supporting them with supplies through the Pack with a Purpose program as well as cultivated excursions for attendees to volunteer for at each summit.
In November 2018, the Engage! Foundation visited the Sarahuaro’s Center for the Development of Women in Los Cabos, Mexico.
The Center offers a variety of educational opportunities for women from Los Cabos most impoverished colonias. With courses focusing on basic life skills, language, literacy, and job training in skills like sewing and hairstyling, the center also provides educational child care and nutritious meals to the children of their attendees.
Through the Pack with a Purpose program, the Engage! Foundation collected and donated art supplies for their craft program, and during an excursion to the Center, Engagee attendees were able to tour their facilities, meet the local women and participate in some of the great projects that the Center offers.
The Engage! Foundation is proud to announce that during the Summer summit, their adopted charity will be The Disabled Persons' Organization.
A cross disability non-profit organization, the DPO has striven for 30 years to empower the disabled community to become more skilled and independent through continuing education and technology training. The Organization strives for the equalization of opportunities and full participation for all persons with disabilities in Bahamian society and the Engage! Foundation is excited to partner and educate with this boundary breaking non-profit organization.
