Our mission is to empower organizations in the social sector to create more impact in their communities. By fostering social enterprise, sustainable development and impact focused work, Trellis is helping move the non-profit and charity sector into the future of sustainable social development.

Trellis is a for-profit social enterprise that gives back 50% of its profits in two areas:

  1. We give back to organizations creating sustainable and long term social impact in their communities
  2. Research into impact measurement within organizations to simplify, standardize, and increase education around impact and how it's measured
