Room with a purpose

Owned by Rollins College, a private coeducational liberal arts college in Winter Park, The Alfond Inn is being built with a $12.5-million grant from the Harold Alfond Foundation.

The Alfond Inn also has an unusual philanthropic and sustainable business model: net operating income from the Inn will endow The Alfond Scholars program. This is Rollins College’s premier scholarship fund, and it offers full scholarships and provides additional financial aid to deserving students. Income will be directed to the fund over the next 25 years or until the endowment principal reaches $50 million, whichever comes later.
