The American Military Partner Association (AMPA) is thrilled to announce that Hilton is greatly expanding its support of AMPA. In celebration of their 100th anniversary, Hilton has more than doubled their sponsorship to fund AMPA’s military spouse scholarship and overall mission for modern military families. In addition to Hilton’s role as the presenting sponsor of the military spouse scholarship, AMPA also announced that Hilton will be a platinum-level sponsor of the 2019 AMPA National Gala — set to take place this Saturday, May 11, 2019 — as well as the organization’s official hospitality partner throughout the year.
“We’re incredibly thankful for Hilton’s unwavering support of AMPA and our mission in education, advocacy and support for LGBTQ military families and allies,” said AMPA President Ashley Broadway-Mack. “Thanks to Hilton’s substantial financial commitment, AMPA is able to expand our incredibly important work and ensure our nation’s modern military spouses are able to pursue their educational goals. We’re proud to have Hilton as both the presenting sponsor of the 2019 AMPA Military Spouse Scholarship and our official hospitality partner.”
“We’re very excited about our growing relationship with the American Military Partner Association and their mission in education, advocacy and support for our nation’s modern military families,” said Andrea Richardson, Hilton’s Director of Multicultural & Diversity Relations. “As we celebrate our 100-year anniversary, it has always been and will always be a priority of ours to support organizations such as AMPA who are doing important work to empower communities. We’re passionate about delivering exceptional guest experiences — especially to America’s brave military families who sacrifice so much for us each and every day.”
