Ashford embraces five guiding principles which we believe best describe what our company stands for: ethical, innovative, profitable, engaging and tenacious. Our guiding principles are more than just a catchy phrase or slogan, they are a way of doing business. Our adherence to these standards is a key component in building a reputation of excellence and integrity.


One of our Five Guiding Principles is to be Engaging. The focus of this principle is for AINC to be an active partner and contributor to our surrounding community and to positively support organizations that assist those less fortunate.
Our major company-wide philanthropic events are our Community Service Day (Spring) and Holiday Events Participation (Winter). In addition, throughout the year, we encourage associates to be mindful of community contributions and we financially support many charitable causes in our markets.

When evaluating opportunities for partnership and contribution we review the mission statements and financial distribution strategy of the charity. Our preferred partnerships are with organizations that focus on assisting individuals to be able to live independently. We believe the best organizations are driven by the adage, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
