Healthy ecosystems are built upon plant and animal species equilibrium. The extinction crisis has profound consequences on natural evolution and sustainability, making us more aware of the response to human activities.

Fundraising with a Return on Impact

Integro Foundation empowers grassroots organizations to maximize positive change by offering grants that create a lasting ROI – return on impact. We believe just like venture capital has compounding interest, charitable donations should have compounding impact. Our goal is to provide 10x efficacy and value for each dollar donated to Integro. That means for every $1 donated, we work to create $10 of value. Through matching campaigns and smart uses of funds, we are able to make donations go further.
