Founded in 2002, Triskeles Foundation strives to create a conscious and sustainable world through engaged philanthropy. We believe that aligning practice with purpose – at the individual level, in the community and on a global scale – can achieve a positive future.

Our Story

 

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. We are committed to making a positive impact towards these goals. Whatever your values are, we can help align your charitable intent with both the underlying investments within your fund and your charitable gifts.

The Blueprint

 

As a national provider of donor advised funds (DAFs), we help individuals, families, and organizations effectively reach their philanthropic goals in a simple manner.

Our Work

 

Three contemporary and ageless themes serve as the inspirational and motivational content for us: 

1) Developing a positive future for all.

2) Bringing consciousness to the deeper aspects of money, it's nature, flow, and how our intentions and motivations influence it.

3) Engaging in and understanding the dynamic between our human individuality and our community(ies).

Our Inspiration
