Our impact

At Away, we believe that the more everyone travels, the better we all become. Travel is powerful, but it’s not always accessible. That’s why it’s our mission to create equitable access to the transformative benefits of travel—for everyone.

This Giving Tuesday, we wanted to spotlight the work we’ve been doing with Global Glimpse since 2020. Learn more and get involved below.

Life-changing travel

We partner with Global Glimpse: a nonprofit organization that provides travel and leadership programs to high school students from a diversity of backgrounds. Global Glimpse has made travel possible for over 7,500 students.

Together, we launched Global Glimpse’s Passport Scholarship Fund to remove the financial barrier for students getting their first passport. In 2022 and 2023, Away will cover the cost of passports for every student in need of one

We also partner with organizations like the  International LGBTQ+ Travel Association and Together We Rise.

Safe and equitable travel

Away is a proud member of the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association: a global association that promotes equality and safety within LGBTQ+ tourism and travel around the world. Our commitment also extends to the IGLTA Foundation, through which we help support their research, leadership development, and travel resources for LGBTQ+ travelers.

Supporting youth in foster care

Together We Rise is a non-profit organization that’s on a mission to transform the way 430,000 youth experience the foster care system. In partnership with Away, Together We Rise is equipping at-risk youth to travel towards successful futures by providing essential resources, top-quality products, scholarship opportunities, and enriching programs.

Our team

Do good as you do well. It’s one of our core values. That’s why every employee—from our New York City headquarters, to stores around the globe—receives paid time off to volunteer. As a result, the Away team has dedicated over 2,000 hours of service to global nonprofit partners, including Start Small Think Big, Together We Rise, and God’s Love We Deliver
