To support and inspire select travel advisors and suppliers, their families and their local communities, in certain circumstances, who are experiencing defined hardships.

About the Travel Leaders Family Bonds Foundation

There are a lot of people within the travel industry family — more than 200,000 individual travel advisors, suppliers and individuals within their communities — and some struggle with unforeseen circumstances that affect them financially. They are single parents working hard to raise a child; they are spending more than they can afford to assist their elderly parents; they are suffering from a personal setback that has affected them financially.

The Family Bonds Foundation was started to help our members when hardships arise…and you can help.

We Can Change Lives

Each year, a small group of parents and children will be chosen from travel advisors, suppliers and their local communities to be awarded grants. These confidential grants will help recipients with such things as college tuition, medical bills, daycare or after-school care, school supplies and other basic necessities.

We Need Your Help

We ask that everyone in the travel industry look deep within their ranks and communities and help us identify those who need our support. Do you know an individual who is experiencing difficult times or financial hardships?
