We come from a range of backgrounds and all have extensive experience of working for and running non-profits in Asia, either previously or currently.
Connecting, Sharing and Learning Work:
Aside from being accountable to the vision and values of the Firetree Trust, we consider ourselves accountable to the changemakers, organisations and networks we support and the communities in which we work,
Consequently, the role of the board is to hold us to account on behalf of the communities we work with and the partners we support. The main duty of the board therefore is to provide brutally honest feedback about where we need to get better and how our approach needs to develop and evolve.
Our board bring a mix of contextual experience of some of the communities in which we work, the social challenges we are collectively working to address and the wider social impact systems in which we operate.
Firetree Philanthropy is an internal program of Firetree Advisory Pte. Ltd, the corporate trustee of the Firetree Trust. Firetree Advisory also manages all the aspects related to our legal compliance and - through its managing director and Trust's Protector Francesco Caruso - it has final oversight over our philanthropic work.
