Half Moon Foundation

The Half Moon Foundation is our way of giving back to the Jamaican people. Our investments and partnerships over the past 40 years have supported education, community service and environmental preservation.  Our goal is to make a substantial and sustainable impact in the lives of our neighbouring communities. We have continually expanded our philanthropic efforts, thanks to our big-hearted guests, corporate support and fundraising events.

  • We express our gratitude by repaying the community that supports us
  • We develop and support educational and outreach programmes
  • We protect the local environment with our sustainable approach and conservation efforts

 

Education

Half Moon has adopted the Barrett Town All Age School, providing everything from a fully-equipped library to computers and classrooms. We also help students prepare for hospitality careers by offering a scholarship programme in hospitality management, work experience and a trainee management programme.

Community Outreach

In addition to maintaining the Half Moon House at the SOS Children’s Village, we’ve partnered with the Granville Place of Safety for Girls. Half Moon also supports charities for the elderly and the mentally ill.

Environmental Protection and Preservation

We’re a long-time champion of the Montego Bay Marine Park and actively participate in World Wetlands Day and Earth Day programmes.

Guest Dollar Donation

Join our fundraising efforts as we support the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association, and Tourism Cares in their relief initiative following the passage of Tropical Storm Harvey and Hurricane Irma. By donating $2 or more, per nightly stay, to our Guest Dollar Donation Programme, you can help Half Moon in its mission to assist our Caribbean neighbours who have experienced devastation. All funds donated to our Guest Dollar Donation Programme throughout the year help us to assist communities in need. We thank you for your generosity.

Pack for a Purpose

Pack for a Purpose is another way guests have become involved with our philanthropic efforts. If you have a little room in your suitcase, we invite you to pack school supplies like notebooks, pencils, pens, erasers and crayons. These donations make all the difference for the 300-plus students at Barrett Town All-Age School. To find out more, please visit How to Pack for a Purpose.

Environmental Responsibility

Half Moon is built around the beauty of clear water and pristine beaches. So we have a huge stake in keeping our part of the world healthy. Half Moon has a dedicated team, certified by Green Globe, with one mission: teaching and applying best practices at the resort, as well as the wider community.
