Erol Foundation

What We Fund

For the first time in history, our species is making an indisputable impact on the entire planet. Pushed by population growth and access to higher standards of living, our interconnected global human societies have altered the earth's climate and are on track to destroy one million animal and plant species. But we believe that humans still have an opportunity to harness that power toward a new sustainable balance, and we want to be part of the solution.
Wildlife Protection

Wildlife Protection

One million species and earth’s most critical ecosystems are under immediate attack. From the deep sea to the tropics to the arctic circle, human impact is felt across the planet. We fund programs that help to slow or even reverse this trend by addressing wildlife trade, securing protected areas and starting to adequately valuate our ecosystems.

Better Business

We are seeing a transformation in the way companies, investors, and consumers participate in the economy. Sustainability is certainly on the horizon for many developed countries, and yet is not keeping up with global growth and insatiable demand. We need bigger, better and bolder solutions…yesterday. Erol partners with nonprofits who are leading this charge.

Equality of Chances

Equality of Chances

Social imbalances are a dangerous consequence of living societies. They are often magnified in times of crisis and, if unresolved, inevitably lead to illness, violence and despair. We seek opportunities to change the system by funding new models for sustainable development, education and cultural evolution.
