CHEI Sponsor

The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation

CHEI is a project of The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation, a private family foundation established in 1965, with the purpose of giving back to the community. Under the current direction of J.W. Marriott, Jr. and Richard E. Marriott, the Marriott Foundation is dedicated to helping youth secure a promising future, especially through education on the secondary and higher education levels, mentoring, and youth leadership programs. Equally important are organizations that help provide relief from hunger and disaster, support people with disabilities, and create gainful employment opportunities for vulnerable youth and adults.
