Airbnb experience

A new way to promote causes

Social impact experiences are a positive way for Airbnb guests to explore new communities by signing up for neighborhood explorations, workshops, or other activities sponsored by local nonprofits.

Build Awareness and Raise Funds

Social impact experiences give Airbnb guests a chance to learn more about your mission and causes — and have some fun along the way.
