Host agency Travel Planners International has entered into a partnership with Tourism Cares, naming the nonprofit its 2019 Signature Charity.

TPI aims to raise $50,000 by the end of next year for Tourism Cares, an organization that supports travel destinations and the people who live there.

The partnership was announced to agents during TPI's recent annual conference, TPI Rocks, during which agents donated $5,466. TPI president Ken Gagliano and executive vice president Tony Gagliano Jr. matched the donation for a total of $10,932.

"Picking Tourism Cares as our first-ever Signature Charity was an easy decision," said Jenn Lee, vice president of sales and marketing. "We recognize that our agents go beyond booking travel. They're small-business owners who are curating the future of travel, they're ambassadors of the world. Tourism Cares is doing just that."
