From children’s education to helping the sick, combating poverty and the conservation of precious ecosystems and rare wildlife, the Royal Resorts Foundation supports a range of community causes. Help us transform lives, give children a better future and protect the planet.

Founded in 1975 in Cancun, Royal Resorts® is a Mexican Caribbean tourism pioneer. A socially responsible company, it is always seeking ways to give something back to the local community and help its most impoverished citizens. In 2006, the Royal Resorts Foundation (Fundacion Royal Resorts A.C.), a non-profit organization, was established to continue its work in Cancun and further afield, seeking to benefit more and more people and combat the threats facing the area’s fragile ecosystems.

There is a sense of community at Royal Resorts that knows no bounds. Many Royal Resorts members and guests return to Cancun year after year and contribute to local causes. From donations to Christmas gifts of toys, school supplies, medical equipment and voluntary work, you can lend a helping hand to those in need by supporting the Royal Resorts Foundation.
