We’re all about making a difference in the lives of everyone we interact with – our teams, our clients, our customers, and our communities.

Mobilizing Dreams

Mobilizing Dreams™ is our commitment to mobilize our hospitality expertise and resources to help our associates, their families and kids in the local communities overcome obstacles and fulfill their dreams.

We invest financial resources, dedicate the skills of our employees and develop partnerships that enhance the communities where we live and work.

Make a Wish

Through the Towne Park Foundation, we make grants and engage our volunteers in three Mobilizing Dreams focus areas:

  • Dreams for Kids: creating VIP experiences for kids facing health obstacles so they can experience moments of joy
  • Dream Scholars: providing access to scholarships and training so Towne Park associates and their families can achieve their goals
  • Dreams Restored: rallying to help associates get the financial and personal support they need in crisis situations so they can move beyond hardship

We believe it is our responsibility to contribute and make an impact in the communities we so proudly serve and build vibrant, sustainable neighborhoods for all.

Towne Park Foundation

Since the Towne Park Foundation’s inception, more than a million dollars has been invested in local and children’s non-profits, scholarships for higher education and support of our employees in times of hardship.

Dreams Restored – Employee Relief Fund

The unprecedented challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic had an immediate impact on our teams, families and our communities. We have been committed to doing what we can to take care of our associates during these very difficult times. Through the Towne Park Foundation’s Employee Relief Fund, we are proud to have contributed $300,000 to support former and current associates experiencing hardship due to the crisis and help them bridge the gap.

At Towne Park we support and care for each other. We want to offer a special acknowledgment and thank you to our many employees who made personal contributions to the fund to support their colleagues in need.

Your much needed help and generosity during this extremely difficult time is an amazing gesture. I felt such a great relief when I opened the mail and saw the check. -- Towne Park Associate, Austin Texas
CEO Andrew Kerin and scholarship winner Andrew Long

2019 Foundation Scholarship Winner Andrew Long

Andrew Long has always had a dedication to people, his community and the environment. Early in his life he developed a curiosity for finding a way to connect the three together.

As a Guest Service Captain at St. Francis Medical Center in West Peoria, Illinois, Andrew got a taste for working with people from all different backgrounds by mentoring his team members and working to provide a patient-focused, caring experience for his hospital guests.

When it came time to apply to colleges, the Community and Environmental Sociology program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus was a natural fit for him to turn his passion for forming a connection between people and the environment into a life-long career.

In 2019, Andrew was awarded a $10,000 per year scholarship by The Foundation and, in the fall, he attended his first UW-Madison class as a full-time student.

He continues his work as a Guest Service Captain while maintaining a full academic course load, and leading several community-driven and volunteer initiatives.
