The Intrepid Foundation is the not-for-profit for Intrepid Group. We work with local organisations around the world to improve the livelihoods of vulnerable individuals and communities through sustainable travel experiences. With our travellers’ help, our Foundation has contributed more than AU $7.5 million to over 125 community organisations since 2002.

Our aim

The Intrepid Foundation aims to support income generation by creating jobs and providing skills training in tourism in the communities we’re involved with. We support established local projects, where we can measure our impact and share the stories of change, so our donors know exactly where their money is going. After all, we’re accountable for the trust placed in us by our partners, travellers, donors and beneficiaries.
