The BLLA Giving Circle is another way of giving back to the industry that gave life to all of us.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead
BLLA Giving Circle
The BLLA Giving Circle is the arm of the Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association that is dedicated to the advancement of education and charitable ventures. Its mission is to improve the industry’s body of knowledge through the provision of information. Its other major purpose includes providing grants for further promotion, education and philanthropic efforts surrounding the boutique and lifestyle sector.
The BLLA Giving Circle will be set up as the charitable, fundraising arm of the association. It will be the primary source of support for the boutique and lifestyle hospitality sector as well as its related activities regarding education, research and financial support for special development within the sector.
The Circle will allow for donations to be made to cover the cost for students (who are focused on the boutique hospitality sector) and who would like to attend the BLLA conferences.
The Giving Circle team is passionate about the work they do.
Helping support artists, clean water, education advancement and other locally-oriented programs is a two-way street, offering as many rewards to the donors as it does to the receiving individuals and organizations.

The Boutique Lodging & Lifestyle Association (BLLA) Giving Circle is the arm of the BLLA dedicated to the advancement of education and charitable ventures.
In order to advance understanding of the boutique and lifestyle section, the Giving Circle provides some grants for hospitality industry personnel seeking assistance with hospitality training. Additionally, the Giving Circle provides ongoing funding for philanthropic efforts that contribute to the education and well-being of communities impacted or supported by the hospitality industry.
We encourage all our members to identify projects in the communities in which they are located and will earmark a percentage of Giving Circle funds as matching funds for member projects.
Charitable organizations we support include:
The Whole World Water Fund
Funds raised through the sale of WHOLE WORLD Water are re-invested in safe, clean water projects around the world.
