The Sotherly Foundation: Helping Our Local Heroes

The Sotherly Foundation is the community outreach arm of Sotherly Hotels. We created the Foundation in 2015 because we wanted to take a more hands-on approach to making a difference in the communities surrounding our hotels, one family at a time.

Each year, the Sotherly Foundation will provide significant aid to one or more American veterans living in the communities around its hotels. Instead of taking a one-size-fits-all approach, we work directly with the veteran and his or her family to find out what they need most and to determine a strategy for meeting that need in the most lasting and meaningful way possible. All recipients are chosen by the Sotherly Foundation Board of Directors with assistance from qualified organizations like the United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment.

The majority of all funds raised comes from the hard work and caring dedication of the employees of our hotels, although the Foundation does accept donations from the general public as well. As a 501(c)3 registered non-profit, all contributions to the Sotherly Foundation are tax-deductible.
