Impact Experiences are compelling social and environmental impact activities where there is one constant – each program makes a lasting and authentic difference.

Impact Experiences offers on-property activities that can be incorporated in the conference agenda during lunch breaks, receptions and coffee breaks, including:

  • Partnering with the hotel’s culinary team to prepare the ingredients for a regionally adapted dish for donation to a local hunger relief organization;
  • Assembling school supplies and art materials in backpacks for donation to students whose academic success is threatened by poverty;
  • Collaborating in teams to assemble emergency preparedness kits for shipping to a disaster relief facility or community organization;
  • Designing and creating greetings and birthday cards for children in a local pediatric healthcare facility or children’s organization.
  • Impact Hour, a platform for leaders from The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints partner organizations to showcase how they are successfully addressing social and environmental issues.

Additionally, Signature Impact Experiences invite our group guests to take part in an off-site volunteer activity, unique to the destination.

Preserving Our National Parks
​The nation’s capital is a historical city of grand monuments and beautiful expanses of parkland — and the National Park Service (NPS) is charged with protecting these beloved treasures. Group guests can join an NPS representative to learn about the city’s inspiring history and help beautify the landscape, remove invasive plants and preserve local species.

Please contact your meetings and special events professional for details on how Impact Experiences can be matched to your group.
