Ellis-Lopez Travel Partners LLC is a “benefit company”. Benefit companies such as B-Corporations or Benefit LLCs are for profit entities, but have a public good component incorporated into their business model. The company is registered as a Statutory Public Benefit LLC. With this designation, the company is required by Delaware state law to adhere to business practices that support public good. Annual reports are submitted to the state each year. To make positive impacts on society, the owners have chosen to focus on the following areas:
About 20 years ago I started volunteering my time for charitable causes. Most of my volunteer hours have been with Habitat for Humanity of DC and the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. I've often made donations each year to the same organizations, as much as I could afford, but I've always wanted to give more. Since 2008, through the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project, I have been supporting the education of an orphaned child who lives In Uganda. My donations cover school fees, books, his school uniform, and daily meals. I am very pleased to watch this young man grow up and support positive changes in his life. Each year, I still feel like my support is not enough. Many times I have thought to myself, what if I could sponsor all 800+ orphaned kids in my student's village? This is a dream for me, and it is only deferred by that major limiting factor we all know as money.
The reason why I created this company was to eliminate the financial barriers that we all face when trying to do more and give more to those less fortunate. Tapping into the world wide trillion dollar travel industry revenue is one of the best ways to generate a steady stream of funds for nonprofits. Now, with the creation of Vacation Grace, my dream (and yours) has become a reality!
