FORWARD
Puerto Rico Fund

A philanthropic-strategic investment tool to mobilize money for systemic changes that promote equity in Puerto Rico.

The FORWARD Puerto Rico Fund is committed to mobilizing investments that will drive systemic changes to advance equity in Puerto Rico. Through this philanthropic-strategic investment tool, the philanthropic ecosystem connects with each other to strengthen and support the island’s community-based organizations and contribute to collective solutions and actions that individual grants could not achieve.

We attract funders to invest in long-term systemic change to move Puerto Rico FORWARD.

Our connection within the philanthropic ecosystem in Puerto Rico is our most valuable asset. We have deep-rooted relationships that allow us to leverage and align that investment, connect more directly with ground realities, engage in active listening, collect data and innovate together to solve common problems. We seek to expand local and international philanthropy organizations to amplify their impact in the way to advance social justice and equity.

"Mobilizing investment for Puerto Rico to drive systemic changes that advance equity."
