Tropic Air has a strong tradition of charitable giving and fundraising, dating back to our founder who was a passionate philanthropist. Through a mixture of donations and fundraising activities, we continue to support charities and local community projects.
Tropic believes it has a corporate responsibility to providing excellent service both on the air and on the ground. As a responsible corporate citizen, we work with a variety of nonprofit partners to make a difference in the communities we serve. This commitment to inspire our community is how we conduct business every day. We work hand-in-hand with local organizations, connecting communities within our areas of commitment: youth and education; health; drug prevention; community and the environment.
Usually, we give through flight donations and other assistance programs, but this year, we decided to take it one step further, with the launch of the #TropicGivesBack. For every ticket bought by our customers at the month’s selected station, $1 is donated to an organization chosen by our staff stationed in that community.
In January, our team in Dangriga raised $500 for the Dangriga Red Cross. In February, Caye Caulker raised $400 for the Cancer Support Group, Arms of Love. March saw Belmopan raise $400 for King’s Childrens home. Currently, it is San Ignacio’s turn, with Punta Gorda scheduled for May.
“Our love of people and community is our most powerful fuel, which is why we have a long history of helping through nonprofit support. We are committed to giving back not just nationally, but in the communities where our customers and employees live and work” said John Greif III, Tropic Air’s President. “Through the #TropicGivesBack Donation program, we hope to spark social, economic, and environmental initiatives in communities across the country. We sincerely appreciate being part of these communities” said Steve Schulte, our CEO.
With this success of this program, we would like to thank our customers´ dedication to making Belize a better place, and we look forward to making this program an annual event.
So as you travel around Belize, look for the banner with our program’s mascot, Lucas, on it. Buy a ticket, and help us to give back.
