We believe our partnership with local communities is critical to sustain the fabric of the diverse destinations we visit. We are deeply committed to the Four Pillars of Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy:
We enable children and young adults to fulfill their potential by providing a supportive learning environment.
We partner with communities living on the edge of wilderness, and support strategies to sustain the balance between endangered species, fragile ecosystems and economic opportunity.
We actively support the water, sanitation and other health-related needs of residents within our partner communities.
We support the growth of economic opportunity in our partner communities through training, income generating activities and other innovations to positively impact livelihoods.
We help nature to thrive and cultures to flourish by positively impacting lives and livelihoods in the communities where A&K guests travel. Through dedicated strategic investments in education, conservation, health care, and enterprise, we inspire our guests and staff to actively support our philanthropic endeavors.
Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP), a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is the philanthropic arm of Abercrombie & Kent (A&K). The organization traces its beginnings back to 1982 when Jorie Butler Kent, AKP Co-Chairman, together with A&K Founder, Chairman and CEO Geoffrey Kent, first raised funds for conservation efforts in the Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya.
Today, AKP carries on A&K’s social and environmental commitments on a global scale with approximately 55 projects on all seven continents. Guests of A&K have the opportunity to visit these projects and support the further development of AKP’s investments in the natural and cultural heritage of diverse destinations around the world.
AKP is committed to operating our philanthropic programs with integrity, accountability, and transparency.
Abercrombie & Kent is a proud recipient of a 2020 Family Travel Association Honors Award in recognition of the outstanding work AKP has done to support the local communities where we operate around the world.
