Social Impact & Sustainability Charitable Giving Program

Since 2004, Ciao Bambino has played a central role in inspiring and enabling families to explore the world. We have witnessed time and time again how travel challenges and transforms families, offers a broader lens to our diverse, multicultural world and extends education beyond the classroom. After living through the COVID-19 pandemic and the radical loss of travel, it’s clear that there is truly no substitute for the value and impact of in-person connections and experiences. We also learned that global communities are more deeply connected to one another than ever.

Purposeful travel is more important than ever.

Taking Action to Travel For Good

We’re putting our money where our mouth is! We are thrilled to announce our social impact and sustainability charitable giving program at Ciao Bambino that offsets the carbon footprint created by travel, while finding ways to accelerate the social impact created by preserving and empowering the communities we visit as we celebrate diversity and inclusion. Ciao Bambino donates quarterly to vetted non-profit organizations whose work helps communities and ecosystems around the world.

Located in Bozeman, MT, EverGreen Adventures connects people living with chronic illness and their caregivers to each other, nature, and opportunities to create and express themselves. Trips planned with Ciao Bambino fund 10 in-person community events, connecting 300 local and visiting participants through activities like rock climbing, yoga, dance, art, fly tying, and support groups.

Seeds of Exchange partners with organizations making a difference when it comes to the world’s greatest injustices and challenges. To date, Seeds of Exchange has raised $80,000 to provide life-saving Vivoblu Water for All filters for those in need of clean, safe water - which has become dangerously scarce in parts of Ukraine during the war.
