Firetree Philanthropy is currently an internal program of Firetree Advisory Pte. Ltd, the corporate trustee of the Firetree Trust.

Firetree Philanthropy will be established as a separate philanthropic legal entity in early 2022. 

Our grants are currently given through Firetree Asia Foundation, based in Hong Kong.


Francesco Caruso, the Trust's Protector, oversees our philanthropic work and has final approval authority over our grants.

Philanthropy Advisory Committee


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 Advisory Committee 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 Advisory Committee brings 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.

The Members of the Advisory Committee support our work on a purely voluntarily basis. The current members are:

Nancyline Agaid
