Founded in 2008 by philanthropy-minded business leaders whose lives have been changed by travel, The Bodhi Tree Foundation identifies and nurtures the most effective grassroots charitable initiatives around the world. The Foundation operates as an independent nonprofit, serving as the philanthropic arm for its fellow JG Worldwide organizations as well as other travel companies. For select international travel organizations who have their own vetted philanthropic efforts but do not possess 501c3 designation, the Foundation is proud to assist in their fundraising efforts by serving as their U.S. fiscal sponsor.
In the face of enormous global challenges, hard-working individuals are transforming their communities for the better in destinations around the world. They don’t have big budgets or slick advertising campaigns but they’re making an impact. A big impact. They’re uniting community leaders to action and educating their neighbors on the real problems facing our planet.
Our aim is to inspire travelers and support travel brands to assist in these charities’ work, ensuring future generations of travelers will be able to experience the natural and cultural wonders of our planet as we do today.
