Westgate Resorts Promotes Charity Racing Program

Westgate timeshare’s charity division, the Westgate Resorts Foundation, has recently announced a new way to support local charities through their employees.

The Westgate Resorts Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity organization developed by the Westgate Resorts timeshare company to support local and large charitable organizations.

The foundation is now offering financial assistance to team members who run in local charity races. They encourage employees to work together by forming running groups. These groups will allow them to volunteer for the events on behalf of the organization.

Since the Westgate Resorts Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity organization, it can only donate money to other charitable organizations. Therefore, Westgate must restrict this running program to only include races that donate a portion of their proceeds to a charity.

Financial assistance will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Employees can participate in a variety of races including 5Ks, 10Ks, marathons, and more. Westgate is open to allowing employees to choose the type of race and the charity, as long as it qualifies under 501(c)(3) guidelines.

While employees are encouraged to participate as a team, there are also options available for individual runners. If a Westgate employee chooses to run a race solo, they will be reimbursed by Westgate up to $100 per year. This reimbursement system can also be used for non-charitable races.

For example, if an employee wishes to participate in the Color Run or the Disney Marathon, they can choose this reimbursement option. Westgate provides this option to support health and wellness within its Westgate team members.
