Appeal to Beneficiaries

Why Give?

Think about how the CTO Foundation has contributed to your education and kick-started or re-energized your career!

Well, the CTO Foundation has changed the lives of many Caribbean nationals for the better and we want to continue to make a difference. Since the award of its first scholarship in 1998, two-hundred and twenty-five (225) persons across our region have benefitted from scholarships or grants to the tune of US$858,618.00.  They have studied at the postgraduate, undergraduate, associate degree, certificate and diploma levels in a variety of specializations, ranging from Tourism and Events Management to Culinary Arts, from Foreign Languages to E-tourism, and from Hospitality Management to Heritage Tourism.

Please join us in investing in the future of regional tourism and those who will lead it. We are aiming to reach a goal of US20,000 annually  through this initiative and we need your help. Your contribution will make a meaningful difference in how many persons the Foundation can assist and all contributions will go directly to the provision of scholarships and study grants.
