The Exodus Travels Foundation

The Exodus Travels Foundation 

Launched in 2019, the Exodus Travels Foundation consolidates decades of support for life-changing, community-based projects across the world. It enables us to extend our vision of harnessing the positive power of travel for the people and places we visit. Thanks to the generosity of our clients, partners, and the breadth of our networks, we are able to support a number of community-based projects which improve life in hard-to-reach places.

Our Projects

O U R   T R U S T E E S 

Pete Burrell – Until retiring from the role of Managing Director at Exodus Travels in early 2018, Pete spent decades being actively involved in Adventure Travel all over the world. His passion for the places he worked in led him to get involved in numerous projects aimed at improving the lives of people living in the area’s tourists visit. Not least in Nepal where a local school has been named in his honour in recognition of all the work he has done there, particularly following the catastrophic 2015 earthquake. Pete’s background and career make him the ideal chairman for our board of Trustees.

Richard Isaacs – An experienced Finance Director and travel industry professional, having worked with such notable brands as BAE Systems, Kuoni and TUI Travel before joining Exodus, Richard has a passion for travel, development, and sustainability. He is an active member in his local community (including bookkeeping for his children’s school parent’s association) and a keen cyclist. Richard is the ideal candidate to be the first Treasurer of the Exodus Travels Foundation.

Crista Cullen – Olympic Gold Medallist Hockey player, adventurer and conservationist, Crista is determined to change the world for the better. She already sits on the board of several organisations and has set up her own foundation, Tofauti Foundation, which empowers communities across Africa. Crista brings to the board of Trustees her width and breadth of experience and her passion for conservation and development.
