Trico Charitable Foundation was established in December of 2008 by Wayne and Eleanor Chiu. The Chiu’s built a company, Trico Homes, that achieved financial success while being socially-minded in terms of serving and giving back to the community. The Foundation’s focus on social entrepreneurship emerged from the Chiu’s passion for entrepreneurship and a keen awareness of the need for creative solutions to ensure sustainability in the non-profit sector.
The Trico Charitable Foundation seeks to close gaps in society by provoking innovation and building capacity in social entrepreneurship. Its work focuses on the Canadian context in three key areas:
Make a unique contribution to the advancement of social entrepreneurship.
“Financial becomes more social, social becomes more financial” and we bridge the two.
Social entrepreneurship goes mainstream.
Gaps in society are closed.
Leverage social entrepreneurship to close gaps in society.
Provoking innovation and building capacity in social entrepreneurship.
