As a worldwide cruise company, Princess Cruises makes its living taking passengers to intriguing places. But our focus is more than providing enjoyable and safe vacations.
As our ships and passengers explore the globe, we are reminded on a daily basis how interconnected we are with communities and people around the world. And because of this connection, it’s important that we do our part to help improve and enrich the lives of those in need.
The Princess Cruises Community Foundation, a nonprofit public benefit corporation, was established in 2009 to provide financial and in-kind support to non-profit organizations that are dedicated to children, education, the environment, disaster relief and community health and welfare in ports visited by Princess ships, in regions where Princess seafarers reside, and locales from which Princess operates.
