Our mission

Established in 2007 as an independent philanthropic entity, the Trafigura Foundation provides long-term funding and expertise to improve the socio-economic conditions of vulnerable communities around the world.

We support non-governmental organisations in the development and implementation of programmes in the fields of Fair and Sustainable Employment and Clean and Safe Supply Chains. Another essential part of the Foundation’s mission is to help Trafigura employees organise and fund staff-led philanthropic activities.

Our method

The collaboration we offer to our partners is based on a “venture philanthropy approach”: aside from funding, our team closely cooperates with organisations working on the ground to provide tailored non-financial support, such as access to our networks, technical advice on governance, operational management and performance measurement.

Ultimately, we care about achieving sustainable results with a real, lasting impact. We expect our grantees to measure and demonstrate such results.
