Donate-to-Travel Site InspiredGiving Launches

Inspirato, the online company that connects travelers with luxury vacation properties, has just launched a new division that will help people make charitable giving a part of their travel plans. The new site, inspiredgiving.com, asks travelers to make a $2,000 donation to any charity in the company’s list of partners—which includes The Lance Armstrong Foundation, Step Up Women’s Network, Malaria No More and dozens of other organizations. The site then grants them access to Inspirato’s portfolio of multimillion-dollar vacation rentals at members-only prices. Choices include a four-bedroom Tuscan villa surrounded by olive groves, which comes with a private chef and sommelier; or a lodge in Aspen with a gourmet kitchen, ski-in/ski-out access and a private hot tub. All properties come with an on-site destination concierge, who can handle everything from pre-stocking the fridge to booking a tee time. It’s vacation-meets-virtue for the digital age. inspiredgiving.com
