The foundation also supports sustainability initiatives. The Gilbert Goanna Tree Planting Fund is Algorand’s first dedicated impact fund, administered by the AK Foundation. The capital raised via donations and community initiatives gets deployed into various de-fi protocols. The generated yield is then used to directly support conservation efforts and tree-planting projects around the globe. This innovative approach allows the fund to be genuinely sustainable in terms of the projects it supports and its longevity. The tree fund has planted 150k trees globally and aims to plant 1 million trees this year.
