Interval International Timeshare Exchange Donates $60,000 to Education Foundation


Interval International timeshare exchange and vacation services provider and its participating Caribbean timeshare and hotel member resorts have made a donation of $60,000 to the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) Education Foundation.

The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association Education Foundation, established in 1987, is a non-profit/ tax-exempt organization that provides scholarships and special assistance for Caribbean timeshare and hotel industry workers seeking to advance their education in the hospitality and tourism industry as well as for students who wish to pursue careers in this field. Since 1987, the Foundation has awarded $1.5 million in scholarships and grants to individuals who have demonstrated a strong commitment to the hotel, timeshare, tourism, and hospitality industry.

David Callaghan, Interval’s vice president of resort sales and service, explains, “We are very appreciative of the commitment of our member resorts to the CHTA Education Foundation. Through our collective efforts, we have had a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of individuals pursuing careers in the hospitality and tourism industry.”

Tom Pas, chairman of the CHTA Education Foundation, adds, “The Foundation is able to provide many more scholarships as a result of the donations from valued supporters like Interval and its resort partners. They play a vital role in funding higher education for Caribbean nationals who in turn contribute to the success of the industry.”

Participating member Caribbean timeshare and hotel resorts who helped make this donation possible include:
