At Brighton Management, giving back to the community is not only important, but a mission statement throughout the entire company. As our company’s brand standard, all Brighton hotels must pledge support to a charity each year to make an impact in their local community. Events to benefit these organizations are organized by team members and include fundraising at the property, hosting programs for underprivileged or sick children, or going into the field to volunteer.
Additionally, our properties participate in fundraising for Brighton’s Corporate Charities:

Over 143,000 children have had their dream come true at Give Kids The World. No child in need has ever been turned away – and no child ever will.

Through the tireless support of our volunteers, employees and generous partners, we dedicate each and every day to these special families.
Brighton Management supports the efforts of GKTWV through fundraising on a portfolio-wide scale. In 2016, President Joseph Fan has pledged a donation of $175,000 to be raised by Brighton’s hotels for the construction of a villa on the GKTWV campus in Orlando, Florida. We encourage our team members & partners to rise to the challenge & join us in reaching this goal. Donation Page for Brighton’s $175k Challenge: http://support.gktw.org/BrightonManagement
