The Heinecke Foundation
The Heinecke Foundation, named after the founder and CEO of Minor International, Bill Heinecke, supports less fortunate children of all ages throughout Thailand who have outstanding records of performance. Each year, the foundation gives scholarships to 449 students which help support their education from early learning stages through to graduation.
On a grassroots level each Anantara hotel and resort also provides support to individual students in their local area who have excelled at school by buying books, pencils and school equipment to help further their education. In return, students are asked to support projects in their own communities. Since 2000, the foundation has supported thousands of children and many have since graduated to earn professional degrees.
