Are you a Marriott Rewards member? Now you can use your Marriott Vacation Club Rewards points to support our troops.
In partnership with Fisher House Foundation, Marriott Rewards points can be donated to provide free hotel rooms for ailing military servicemen and women and their families during treatment.
Similar to the UK’s Give Us Time program that we discussed a few weeks ago, this new partnership gives Marriott Rewards owners a unique opportunity to support US troops who have been injured in service to our country.
For recovering soldiers injured in the line of duty, having the support of friends and family is crucial to the healing process. But the costs of long stays far from home can be prohibitive. Fisher House Foundation’s Hotel for Heroes partnership with Marriott Rewards means members can give the gift of family to those service-people who need it most.
“Our company truly appreciates the dedication of our service men and women and the work they do to protect our freedom. That is why we are so proud of this partnership with Hotels for Heroes,” said Ed French, senior vice president, Marriott Rewards. “Now we can offer our members the option of helping those who’ve been injured while serving and protecting the USA.”
Points can be redeemed for Hotel for Heroes Charitable Awards in the following denominations:
- 1,000 Marriott Rewards points
- 5,000 Marriott Rewards points
- 10,000 Marriott Rewards points
- 25,000 Marriott Rewards points
The nonprofit Fisher House Foundation administers the “Hotels for Heroes” program in partnership with the Department of Defense. All requests for a free hotel room are verified by an authorized government official. Donations are tax deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.
