Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa continues efforts to support its neighbors by providing frequent donations to local organizations and sponsoring Marco Island’s community events and scholarships.
Marco Island Marriott was a top sponsor of the recent Souper Bowl Marco event that raised a record-breaking $11,000 for the Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce Leadership Marco scholarship fund. Additionally, last month the resort provided a $10,000 sponsorship for the 3rd annual Festival on Marco event, which benefited the Greater Marco Island YMCA and Marco Island Charter Middle School.
Marco Island Academy, the community’s first charter high school, is another organization that Marco Island Marriott is passionate about supporting. A recent $30,000 fund-matching donation, a $6,600 grant to the school’s Cornell Summer Scholarship and $2,500 to the Ambassador of the Environment Summer program brings the resort’s total contributions to the school in 2014 to $50,000 and to just over $180,000 since 2011.
Supporting Tommie Barfield Elementary’s Bring your own Device (BYOD) program that encourages students to use today’s technology in a learning environment, Marco Island Marriott recently donated $5,000 that will provide students who may not have access to these devices with 12 iPads for shared use.
