We’re a company of driven creatives and visionaries. But that means nothing if it’s only to serve ourselves. In every community in which we live, work, and play, Sage is dedicated to giving back. Whether it’s our time, our resources, our skills, or our knowledge—we give whatever it takes to help make the places that we’re in that much better.
Sage gives back every day across the nation through our hotels and restaurants. Community citizenship is one of our core values, and associates are encouraged to give their time to nonprofits that interest them. In addition to on-property initiatives, Sage has two core giving programs: Dollars for Dreams and Hungry to Help.
At the beginning of 2019, Sage Hotel Management launched our refreshed Dollars for Dreams program and partnership with Camp Southern Ground (CSG). The goal of the partnership is to send as many children (of Sage Associates) to camp as possible.
Each Sage Hotel Management location is tasked with raising the camper sponsorship amount of $3,000. Once raised, associates can enter their children’s names into a drawing. A lucky camper is selected and sent on the summer adventure of a lifetime.
In the summer of 2019, Sage sent nine campers to CSG. Each camper came back with rave reviews—and so did their parents.
Hungry to Help is our guest and associate donation program that supports Sage Restaurant Concepts’ commitment to positively impacting the communities in which we live, work, and play.
Each year, Hungry to Help designates a different charitable recipient, and each of our restaurants nationwide works in different ways to assist that charity with its mission. Since its origin in 2016, Hungry to Help has raised over $200K for partner charities such as Share Our Strength, CORE, and World Central Kitchen.
