IMPACT PARTNERS

Part of our strategic Travelers' Philanthropy initiative that unites businesses and customers in the

tourism sector with local environmental, social, and economic causes.

HOW IT WORKS

Responsibility. Opportunity. Investment

1. We seek out businesses and individuals who are community-minded and dedicated to

caring for the people of Monteverde and their cloud forest home. 


2. Then, we work together to create a mechanism for channeling dollars into the community.  

This takes many forms: annual giving, matching customer donations, and 

donated proceeds from a select product, for example.

3. Finally, we reinvest those funds in our impact model and, principally, our Small Grants Program. 

MEET THE LOCAL ENTERPRISES:

Coffee Tours Alliance

Five local coffee tours have created a historic alliance and are now donating $1 per visitor to the Monteverde Community Fund and the Asoc. Desarrollo San Luis to invest in social and environmental projects that benefit the community.
