Symbiotic Partnerships Inc. Ecofund

Symbiotic Partnerships is committed to improving the world we live in.  As the company name infers... living harmoniously in a natural world. The Symbiotic Ecofund focuses on donating funds to existing charities that rebuild, preserve, and enhance symbiotic relationships in nature. This could include coral reefs, tropical rain forests, boreal forests, prairie grasslands, indigenous native peoples communities, and other ecosystems that support declining wildlife; all of which are currently under threat of destruction and decline. The overriding theme is to improve threatened ecosystems that negatively effective our water, air and land so that it will continue to sustain a vibrant natural community.

The various Symbiotic companies set aside up to 10% of their net profits annually. These funds are transferred to the Symbiotic Ecofund and held there In Trust. The staff of the Ecofund investigate and analyze various charities that fit into the above noted profile. Each year they make recommendations to the Managing Directors of the various Symbiotic companies, as to which charities they suggest the funds be invested. The Managing Directors  approve the allocation of funds each year, after review of the staff's recommendations and discussion.

For the calendar year 2017 the selection committee has already selected its first charity recipient. They selected Ontario Nature's 2017 Young Summit to donate to. This charity best reflects the philosophies of our Symbiotic Ecofund this year.

On behalf of the Symbiotic Partnerships Inc. selection committee, congratulations to the 2017 selected charity. Please see the link to the correspondence on the Ontario Youth Summit below:
