PROJECTS

The Bodhi Tree Foundation takes pride in vetting and nurturing worthy grass-roots projects around the world to support that align with our mission to help people in need, preserve cultural heritage and protect wildlife diversity. We look for projects that are community-based and sustainable, have measurable end results, and support areas in which tourism is (or could be) a positive source of development. All projects are carefully vetted by the Executive Board.

To date, we have provided over $200M in financial support to 26 projects in 21 countries.
