IHG HOTELS & RESORTS donated $500,000 to the American Hotel & Lodging Association Foundation’s No Room for Trafficking Survivor Fund to combat human trafficking.
It is the most recent donation by a large hotel company to the fund.

The Survivor Fund works to end human trafficking and support the economic stability of human trafficking survivors with the contribution, a statement added. It
supports survivors’ immediate needs and long-term stability that will empower and equip survivors and their families to help prevent revictimization, including but
not limited to emergency housing and career development support by funding community-based organizations.

Since its inception, the fund has raised $2.5 million with contributions from Extended Stay America, G6 Hospitality, Hilton Global Foundation, Hyatt Hotels Foundation
and Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.

“IHG Hotels & Resorts is committed to eradicating human trafficking, and this support of the NRFT Survivor Fund underscores our long-standing effort to condemn this
exploitation and help survivors,” said Elie Maalouf, IHG’s CEO for the Americas. “The fund will play a crucial role in providing survivors with the support they need
for future stability and success. Recognizing that our industry has a unique opportunity to fight human trafficking collectively, we proudly join our peers and AHLA
Foundation in continuing to make impactful change.”
