We are experts in providing ground-breaking, practical solutions to the very real challenges and opportunities that tourism brings.  But we need your help to continue our vital work.

  • We take a scientific approach to understand what the impacts of tourism are in each destination and how to improve them. This includes conducting thorough preliminary research, employing robust evaluation criteria and using a theory of change approach.
  • Our work is designed to align with the UN’s sustainable development goals focussed on; sustainable, inclusive economic growth (8), sustainable consumption and production (12), the conservation and sustainable use of the oceans (14).
  • We take a collaborative approach for lasting impact. We gain input and involvement from all stakeholders to ensure beneficiary needs are met, and to identify and overcome barriers to change.
  • We value your input. We have clear criteria to ensure that our projects meet our own mission and goals. But we know that every grant-maker has their own philanthropic aims, so we take the time to develop projects that will align with both. 
  • Take a look at some of our latest achievements.

“With projects in several countries, the Travel Foundation has demonstrated clear results, and monitoring mechanisms towards advancing sustainable tourism.”

“We work together with the Travel Foundation, which has the expertise and the local contacts to conduct solid impact assessments and projects. With their local teams on the ground, organisations like the Travel Foundation can be a bridge between destinations and the travel industry.”
