Improving the lives of others and investing in causes that enhance social good are core values shared by the UDGI team. Charitable giving of talent, time, and treasure are encouraged by making philanthropy a part of our business strategy and organizational culture. Del Corazon, the charitable foundation of the Ayyad Family contributes to many worthy causes. UDGI also partners with charities that effectively improve the lives of the less fortunate and helps them achieve their goals.
The importance of volunteerism is woven into our culture and each employee is encouraged to make a difference by offering one paid volunteer day for each employee every quarter. Our team is highly involved in civic, charitable, and community programs and organizations. Del Corazon also provides a matching gift program, matching contributions made by our employees to charitable causes, up to $500 per year.
At UDGI, we aim to inspire others through our leadership and seek to create value for all our stakeholders. We appreciate the opportunities that have been provided to us and do all that we can to show our gratitude through altruism and investment in responsible initiatives.
Founded in 2006, our charitable giving foundation is committed to supporting many worthy causes that support education, stable housing, food security, the alleviation of poverty and the provision of medical care to those in need. By leveraging the resources of UDGI, the foundation empowers numerous organizations that effectively improve the lives of the less fortune and helps them achieve their goals. Del Corazon also makes targeted donations to non-profit organizations that positively impact the communities where UDGI employees and residents work and live.
Feeding America’s mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.
With the support of its generous partners, the Feeding America network is meeting the needs of families across the country and helping them find the strength to move forward and flourish.
Our Support During COVID-19
Closer to home in San Diego, Feeding America has been providing food for those in the community unable to do so for themselves. This need has increased dramatically since the start of the pandemic. Del Corazon contributed $6k for the purchase of food for families who otherwise may go hungry.
It doesn’t take a big commitment to make a big impact. Together, with millions of other food bank volunteers, your time makes a difference in the lives of your neighbors struggling with hunger. Help the Feeding America nationwide network get food in the hands of those who need it most.
Fundación Futuro Brillante was established in August 2016 by the developers of the hospitality project Punta Sabana. The founders are deeply committed to supporting local communities, and thus created Futuro Brillante to help the residents of the Cabo Velas District in Guanacaste achieve a “brighter future” through the delivery and execution of high quality education programs, infrastructure development, technical training, and environmental projects. Futuro Brillante accomplishes its mission through direct program delivery in coordination with the local community, as well as collaborative partnerships with the private sector, public institutions, and other nonprofit organizations.
