Giving Requests

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Host Hotels & Resorts. We are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and to strengthening our local communities and welcome your inquiry for support. Please read the following information carefully before proceeding with any funding request.

Focus Areas

Giving Categories

Consistent with our EPIC values and commitment to corporate citizenship, we’re dedicated to making a positive difference within our community through our corporate giving program. Each year, we support charities and philanthropic organizations through strategic and industry relationships, sponsorships, financial contributions, emergency relief and volunteerism—with a focus on organizations that promote public awareness and advance research, education, leadership development initiatives and organizations that improve the health and lives of underprivileged men, women and children. Special attention is given to activities with broad-based human impact that are not heavily supported by government funds. We support organizations that promote participation and cooperate rather than compete with similar organizations. 

Health, Education, Welfare

Hospitals, health and youth agencies, food banks, schools and educational programs.

Civic and Industry

Associations such as Chamber of Commerce and nonpartisan advocacy organizations.


Museums, public radio and television, public libraries, aquariums, zoos and historic preservation organizations.


Organizations related to the conservation or protection of the environment.

Corporate Responsibility Themes

Through our giving and evaluation criteria, we aim to further support and align with our focus areas as well as our Corporate Responsibility strategic framework, which follows three themes: Responsible Investment, Environmental Stewardship and Corporate Citizenship. This framework informs the integration of sustainability and social responsibility into our business and guides our engagement with our communities.
