Geben ist der Kern dessen, was wir sind. Über die Cotopaxi Foundation, die Zuschüsse an gemeinnützige Organisationen vergibt, die Gemeinden in extremer Armut unterstützen, binden wir unsere Einnahmen an die Wirkung unserer Arbeit. Cotopaxi ist auch Mitglied von 1% for the Planet, was bedeutet, dass wir uns verpflichtet haben, mindestens 1 % des Jahresumsatzes für einen gesünderen Planeten für alle zu spenden. Bis heute haben wir durch unsere Arbeit schätzungsweise 3,8 Millionen Menschen erreicht.

Our Focus We concentrate our efforts in Latin America’s poorest communities, investing in health, education, and livelihood, categories identified by MIT’s Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) to have high potential for alleviating poverty.
