Philanthropic Ventures Foundation (PVF) is a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to supporting outstanding charitable work, customizing giving programs for donors, initiating new dimensions in grantmaking and acting as the depository for charitable projects.
PVF serves as the fiscal depository for the Forest & Tree Fund. Forest & Tree is a charitable initiative that provides young people in grades Tk-12 with outdoor learning experiences away from the four walls of a traditional classroom in order to develop a stronger sense of self, community and connection with the natural world. In collaboration with educators and students, Forest & Tree works to create programming personalized to each school to lead and develop outdoor learning curriculum and experiences to help expand a young person's sense of what is possible.
