The Intrepid Foundation is the not-for-profit arm of our business on a mission to create positive impact through the joy of travel, community and connection.

Here's how:

  • We identify: Our Intrepid team members from around the world connect with their local communities to identify where support is needed most
  • We connect: We carefully select and connect with local and global partners who are creating positive solutions in these areas
  • We empower: We support and empower our partners without telling them what to do; they know where help is needed and how to best deliver it
  • You donate: Our Intrepid community make donations, create fundraisers, attend events and support emergency appeals
  • We give: We cover all administration costs so that 100% of your donations go to our carefully selected partners on the ground
  • You make change: Your support enables our local and global partners to make positive impact through the joy of travel, community and connection

In 2022, we're working towards a fundraising goal of $2 million for the Intrepid Foundation.

Blue Dragon Children's Foundation

Children growing up in extreme poverty in Vietnam often have no choice but to quit school to help their families earn money. This can expose them to dangers including human trafficking, sexual exploitation and illness. Collaborating with local governments, Blue Dragon works to fight the causes of human trafficking and rescue victims. Their team of social workers, psychologists, teachers and lawyers offer individualised support to every child rescued, and when possible, children are reunited with their families.
