Being responsible travellers plays a huge part in why we do what we do, and we have a long history in supporting non-government healthcare, human rights, and welfare projects around the world.

Established in 2002 by Intrepid Group founders Darrell Wade and Geoff Manchester, The Intrepid Foundation has been empowering travellers to make a positive difference and help communities in the places we visit. Over the past 14 years, our not-for-profit foundation has raised over AUD$5,000,000 for more than 70 projects around the world.

Based on our knowledge and experience, the Intrepid Foundation supports projects in areas where we know we can make a real impact, such as:
