The AHLA Foundation is the industry’s philanthropic organization and has been a beneficiary of ALIS since its inception. Conference proceeds have helped the AHLA Foundation fulfill its mission of helping people build careers, improve their lives, and strengthen the lodging industry.

The Foundation is committed to elevating, educating, and empowering individuals and the public on the industry’s story of opportunity and advancement. From lifting individuals out of poverty and connecting them with a life-long career in the industry to providing certifications to promote current hotel employees into leadership positions, the Foundation’s programs are changing the industry by changing lives.

The AHLA Foundation is also committed to fostering careers for people of color and women to ensure our employees—from entry-level to C-suite—are as diverse as our guests. In 2020, the AHLA Foundation announced a new commitment of $5 million and action plan over the next five years to advance diversity, equity and inclusion within the hotel and lodging industry.

The AHLA Foundation is funded solely by contributions from generous individuals and companies who want to give back to the hotel industry and ensure a successful future.
