Campaign Overview

Opening Doors to Opportunity Logo

The Opening Doors to Opportunity campaign set out to raise a minimum of $8,000,000 in support of the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Foundation and exceeded its goal.  Under the leadership of Campaign Chair Kirk Kinsell, over 100 companies and individuals realized that the hotel industry – a supporter of 8 million jobs – thrives when the core of the industry, its people, are provided educational opportunities.  The donations will be used to fund the Foundation’s academic scholarships, professional development, and industry research programs.  Thank you to every donor who collectively helped us reach this lofty goal.  Because of their diligence and unwavering support, the doors to a future in hospitality are truly open to all. View a full list of our generous supporters.
