TREE shall make charitable grants and contributions to several causes related to the environment and water. TREE will also establish its own foundation aimed to help children and families in Puerto Rico, living in deprivation due to recent weather-related events, to escape the cycle of poverty and fulfil their human potential.
We shall achieve this by investing in initiatives and interventions across four key charitable areas: Environment, Water, Education, & Humanitarian Response. Our focus is on supporting solutions that improve quality of life, performance, promote greater inclusion, foster appropriate innovation and catalyze access to finance, all within the broader context of poverty. This means that the work we support is invariably in low, and low to middle income Caribbean and South/Central American countries, where the challenging effects of chronic under-development, conflict and natural disasters are commonplace.
We will work with key stakeholders across civil society, the private sector, national governments, public institutions and international partners to reinforce and improve existing in-country systems. Where these systems are not working or do not exist, we seek to address the status quo by promoting innovation – or successful solutions from similar settings – to bring about lasting and sustainable change.
We will consider some of our grants to be investments and look for initiatives with the potential to generate social returns in a sustainable way. We are able to provide financial support to NGOs, social businesses and private companies (provided any profit generated during the lifetime of our grant funding is reinvested in the business), but not usually to public authorities. Partners and projects are expected to have the potential to be transformational and impactful, effective and efficient, sustainable, scalable and replicable. In return, the TREE support to foundations aspires to be both responsive and flexible and to understand the evolving needs in difficult circumstances. We also actively encourage partnerships between and among donors, implementers and the public and private sectors.
We only look to support organizations which have won the confidence of like-minded funders, align with our funding philosophy and which deserve wide support for the potential they demonstrate in bringing real impact to scale. We place great emphasis on working partnership between and among donors and implementers, and regret that we cannot accept unsolicited applications.
