Jet card and on-demand charter broker Amalfi Jets has committed to building a primary school in Tanzania as part of its philanthropy.
Amalfi Jets has raised $140,000 to fund its charitable foundation during the first half of 2023.
The Amalfi Jets Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity that acts as a philanthropic arm and serves to fulfill the company’s charitable mission of elevating underserved communities at home and abroad.
“This foundation is a testament to Amalfi Jets’ dedication to giving back to society and making a
difference in people’s lives…Amalfi Jets’ commitment to social responsibility is evident, and we look forward to sharing with you the positive impact that the Amalfi Jets Charitable Foundation will have on communities in need, whether local or global,” said Kolin Jones, CEO of the company.
The broker has also appointed Anna Sarnoff as President of Corporate Social Responsibility to lead the efforts.
She also serves as Managing Director of the foundation.
According to the announcement, Sarnoff has 10 years of experience in the non-profit sector and a Master of Social Work and specialization in Social Enterprise Business Administration from Columbia University.
Last month, the foundation secured 523,000 square feet of land in Arusha, Tanzania.
It has committed to building a primary school for local children in the area, planning on breaking ground this winter.
Earlier this year, the foundation provided a $15,000 grant to Matthew McConaughey’s foundation to sponsor the after-school program at Venice High School in California.
The charity has also given away over $19,000 in college scholarships to deserving students at local high schools.
