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
Our Story continued


From 2002 - 2009, Triskeles (Greek for "three legs" or activity areas) developed it's three program areas:

1) philanthropic services, including Donor Advised Funds

2) experiential youth programs

3) consulting/advisory services to support smaller nonprofits

In 2009, in order to further focus responsibilities, Triskeles realigned it activities into two separate nonprofits: Triskeles Foundations, which continues to offer Donor Advised and Organizational Funds, and Trellis For Tomorrow, which offers and develops experiential youth programs.
