A&K Philanthropy


The travel industry is in the midst of a transformation toward greater equity and sustainability. At Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP), we are dedicated to positively impacting lives and livelihoods in the communities where our guests travel. We are equally committed to ensuring guests learn about our philanthropic investments as an integral part of their travel experience. From Africa to Asia, Latin America to the Antarctic, we are working with partner communities on education, health care, conservation and enterprise development projects.


We believe our partnership with local communities is critical to sustain the fabric of the diverse destinations we visit. We are deeply committed to the Four Pillars of Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy:

We enable children and young adults to fulfil their potential by providing a supportive learning environment.

We partner with communities living on the edge of wilderness, and support strategies to sustain the balance between endangered species, fragile ecosystems and economic opportunity.

We actively support the water, sanitation and other health-related needs of residents within our partner communities.

We support the growth of economic opportunity in our partner communities through training, income generating activities and other innovations to positively impact livelihoods.

We help nature to thrive and cultures to flourish by positively impacting lives and livelihoods in the communities where A&K guests travel. Through dedicated strategic investments in education, conservation, health care, and enterprise, we inspire our guests and staff to actively support our philanthropic endeavours.


Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP) is the philanthropic arm of Abercrombie & Kent (A&K). The organization traces its beginnings back to 1982 when Jorie Butler Kent, AKP Co-Chairman, together with A&K Founder, Chairman and CEO Geoffrey Kent, first raised funds for conservation efforts in the Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya.

Today, AKP carries on A&K’s social and environmental commitments on a global scale with 46 projects across 24 countries. Guests of A&K have the opportunity to visit these projects and support the further development of AKP’s investments in the natural and cultural heritage of diverse destinations around the world.


AKP is committed to operating our philanthropic programs with integrity, accountability, and transparency.
