A new wave of company altruism has pushed many large corporations toward giving back to their community or global charities. While it may be rather unknown to the public, a big contributor to many charities and nonprofits over the years is Carnival Corp., the umbrella company for Carnival Cruise Lines and the new social-impact travel cruise line, fathom (yes, with a trendy lowercase f).
A lot of this is thanks to the Arison family, key owners of Carnival Corp., who have been profiting from cruising fun over the years, always returning some of their funds to charities and other notable organizations. Based out of South Florida, founder Ted Arison has been very active in using his profits to do good. To name one, he is the chief benefactor of the New World Symphony youth orchestra in Miami Beach.
