Harris Rosen Foundation
Groups that benefit from the Harris Rosen Foundation are significant to Harris Rosen, president and owner of Rosen Hotels & Resorts®. Aside from his love for the hospitality business, Mr. Rosen has a passion for giving back. Through the years the foundation has focused on education, the community of Tangelo Park in Orlando, and the people of Haiti. Now that passion is growing and extending to newer communities and groups in need.
Tangelo Park Programa Piloto
The community of Tangelo Park is located approximately one-quarter mile southeast of Orlando’s International Drive tourist area. From the late 1980s through the early 1990s, Tangelo Park characterized a typical urban community with low socioeconomic demographic problems: overt drug problems, poor school attendance, declining test scores, and high school dropout rates.
The Tangelo Park Program began as a result of a grass roots program that attracted local media attention and attention from local government, civic groups, e Harris Rosen. In 1993, after a successful effort to reclaim their neighborhood from urban blight and drug dealers, Tangelo Park community leaders met with Mr. Rosen and the Orange County School Board superintendent to discuss the possibility of a scholarship program for Tangelo residents; together they established the Tangelo Park Pilot Program.
Mr. Rosen provided the financial backing for the pilot project and collaborated with community leaders to establish an advisory board with the continued support of the Tangelo Park Elementary School, the Tangelo Park YMCA, Tangelo Igreja Batista, and the Tangelo Park Civic Association. With financial support guaranteed by Mr. Rosen, the Tangelo Park Program oversees the fundraising, educational needs, and scholarship distributions for its citizens–ages 2 a 22. At no cost to its citizens, TPP offers:
- Pre-school opportunities for every Tangelo Park 2-3-4-Year-Old
- Parenting classes and vocational or technical opportunities for parents with children in school
- Full tuition, quarto, board, and living expenses for every Tangelo Park high school graduate who is accepted by a vocational school, community college, or public university in the state of Florida
Second Multimillion-Dollar Community Education Initiative Launched in Parramore
Parramore, a neighborhood west of Downtown Orlando, is the next neighborhood Mr. Harris Rosen has his focus on to expand his philanthropic and highly successful community education initiative program that he started in Tangelo Park. This initiative offers free preschool at a new public school set to open in Parramore on August 2017. Teachers’ salaries will be paid for by the Harris Rosen Foundation. Twenty-four preschool classrooms designed to accommodate up to 12 children each, for a total of 288 crianças, will welcome two-, three-, and four-year-old children.
Children who attend the new elementary and middle school and then graduate from Jones High School, will receive a free two or four-year college or vocational school education, also paid for by the Harris Rosen Foundation. Free tuition includes meals, books, and transportation.
The University of Central Florida (UCF), who is a partner in this initiative, announced that scholarships will be provided to four-year degree students of the College of Medicine who attended the new Parramore School, graduated from Jones High School, and successfully completed an undergraduate program at UCF.
O Rosen Foundation Scholarship
The Rosen Foundation Scholarship Endowment has been created to fund the Tangelo Park and Parramore Scholarship Programs, o Hospitality Programa Bolsa Escola UCF, and Rosen Hotels & Resorts®’ Dependent Scholarship Program.
Rosen College of Hospitality Management na University of Central Florida
Com Orlando tornando rapidamente o local turístico mais visitado do mundo, Harris Rosen acreditava que só seria adequado para a cidade para ter o melhor programa de hospitalidade disponíveis no país. Doou $10 million to establish the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida, which was built right next to Rosen Shingle Creek® hotel. O presente é o maior já prometeu ou recebidos pela Fundação UCF. Sob a lei atual Flórida, presentes deste tamanho se qualificar para o dólar por dólar correspondência estado, o que se traduz $20 million for a facility and faculty providing students with a world-class education equal to the Orlando hospitality industry itself.
Harris Rosen has once more offered a tremendous gift to further secure a high-quality educational institution. For the first time ever, an endowed deanship has been established by Mr. Rosen to secure top talent in this prestigious role amongst faculty. Mr. Rosen hopes the endowed deanship will help university administrators find and secure the best academic leader available who will offer leadership, vision, and guidance to continue to keep Rosen College of Hospitality Management at UCF on the cutting edge of industry trends.
Bethune-Cookman College Bronze Statue Project
Harris Rosen served as the honorary co-chair of the Bethune-Cookman College Statue Project with the late Dr. Dorthy Height, President Emeriti of the National Council of Negro Women. The purpose of this initiative was to have a statue sculpted of America’s beloved Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune including fountains and landscaping on the campus of Bethune-Cookman College, which Dr. Bethune founded in 1904. The fundraiser was a huge success. Em Janeiro de 2005, the statue was unveiled on the Bethune-Cookman College campus.
YMCA Aquatic Center
Enfrentando tempos difíceis financeira, the YMCA Aquatic Center located on International Drive closed eliminating an important resource for area residents. In 1992 Mr. Rosen fought to keep the YMCA Aquatic Center open to the public. Reverter esta situação viria a ser um dos Mr. Maiores desafios de Rosen, que ele conheceu com sucesso.
The Aquatic Center reopened its doors and now serves the best youth group of divers in America, nado sincronizado, master swimmers, nadadores do ensino médio, e idosos em busca de tratamento de água terapêutica.
Haiti-Reconstruir-Sustain Relief Program
The Harris Rosen Foundation has been dedicated to helping Haitian brothers and sisters living in Haiti attain a level of self-sufficiency for over a decade. It assists in the areas of education and health with donations to hospitals, orphanages, and schools in Haiti. Over the years our Haiti Task Force visited Haiti several times to deliver medical and school supplies, which were collected in the Central Florida area through supply drives and donations from local businesses. In addition to analyzing the needs of Haitians and devising a plan of action to help, they are also responsible for ensuring all supplies delivered to Haiti go directly to the people who most need help.
The one area where Haiti needed the most help is one we often take for granted: a clean water supply. In Haiti much of the water is so contaminated that just one glass may cause serious illness or even death. On September 10, 2005, The Harris Rosen Foundation and the Task Force hosted the Water for Haiti Gala. Os recursos arrecadados neste evento de gala foram usados para comprar perto de 250 water filtration systems that were delivered to hospitals and schools in rural areas of Haiti.
Weeks after the historic and devastating earthquake of 2010, the foundation delivered 20,000 quilos de suprimentos para as áreas de Port-au-Prince e Beauchamp. Our people were on the ground in Haiti, juntamente com aeronaves de asa fixa, to facilitate delivery of these urgently needed medical supplies to wherever they were needed.
Desde 2010, a Fundação tem-se centrado na reconstrução e manutenção, including identifying ways to design and construct sturdier buildings. O plano era construir eco-friendly, earthquake-and-hurricane-resistant houses called “Little Haiti Houses.” Mr. Rosen e sua equipe trabalharam com o governo haitiano em garantir terra, mas quando as negociações terminaram na dissolução de um Memorando de Entendimento, o projeto foi colocado em espera. Ansioso para continuar o trabalho no Haiti, Rosen Fundação Harris parceria com a Food internacional sem fins lucrativos para os pobres para construir uma nova escola primária no Haiti. Construção está em andamento para a escola de seis salas de aula localizado em Jon L'Abeille, uma pequena cidade na cidade de Cayes. Ele servirá alunos no jardim de infância até a sexta série. A colaboração entre a Fundação Rosen Harris e sem fins lucrativos é uma extensão do compromisso nacional da fundação para fornecer oportunidades educacionais para jovens carentes e desfavorecidos.

Cornell Alternative Spring Break
Em março 2008, Cornell University expanded its Alternative Spring Break program to send its college students to Tangelo Park in Orlando, Flórida. Cornell students who volunteered for this hands-on learning opportunity in our city spent spring break with the children of Tangelo Park to enrich their college studies and, in turn, enrich the lives of the children they served. Every year since, Cornell students spend their spring break volunteering in Tangelo Park.
The inaugural spring break of 2008 attracted nine students to spend a majority of their time working with pre-school through fifth grade students at the Tangelo Park Elementary School. They also participated in a science night in conjunction with sixth graders from Southwest Middle School. Cornell students also mentored students of Southwest Middle School and Dr. Phillips High School de. Within their busy week, estudantes de Cornell fez o tempo para projetos de arte com alguns dos dois, three-, and four-year-old children in the community.
Cornell University’s Alternative Spring Break program offers its students the chance to hear personal stories from the students and residents of Tangelo Park, educators, service personnel, and care providers who all provide insight into the Tangelo Park community. The week ends with a reflection session where Cornell students and a planning team examine the effects of public service and philanthropy on at-risk families and their experience with socioeconomic diversity, community involvement, and current social issues in the Tangelo Park community.
