COVID-19 Relief & Resources

 

On behalf of the Trico Charitable Foundation, we hope everyone is staying home, safe, and healthy. We would also like to extend a huge thank you to everyone doing their part as we navigate through the unknown.

In response to COVID-19, the Trico Charitable Foundation has taken our $250,000 annual A.S.E.S.S. budget for local social enterprises and re-allocated it to charitable organizations that are working on the front lines to address COVID-19’s impact on those experiencing poverty.

Social entrepreneurship = social x entrepreneurship.

At its core, social entrepreneurship uses business models/ markets to solve social problems. Regardless of whether it’s an individual or an organization, regardless of their choice of incorporation- non-profit or for-profit, these elements are the driving and amplifying force.

We support social entrepreneurship.

We are a private foundation that believes in supporting social entrepreneurship through programmatic, grant making, and partnership approaches. We take a systems view to every decision we make and foster social entrepreneurship by supporting the ecosystem and providing social entrepreneurs with capacity building resources.

We are entrepreneurial.

We believe in making social entrepreneurship mainstream. We know we can’t do it alone. Which is why we don’t just fund organizations; we work with them and learn with them to move the sector forward, taking risks along the way.
