CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
“It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.”
- Mother Teresa
Since its inception, TresVista has been committed to serving the community to which it belongs. The founders appreciate that the proper functioning and improvement of a society requires its people, both as individuals and as corporate citizens to take not only responsibility, but also action. More than just monetary donations, TresVista attempts to instill a sense of civic responsibility in each of its members through Firm-organized service events.
Most of the activities the Firm has been involved in, have been local in nature. The small changes that we can make and witness, allow TresVista employees to become more engaged and committed towards donating time and money for socially valuable causes.
Individuals in the Firm are encouraged to promote causes and organizations they are passionate about. The founders often participate in service events with individual champions of causes. We, as a team, are devoted to continue contributing to the community by putting in our best efforts.
Beyond Capital Fund
TresVista works with Beyond Capital Fund (BCF), an impact investment charity that fosters sustainability and long-term social change through seed capital investments. Their focus is in the water, waste and sanitation, healthcare and energy business sectors in India and East Africa. By addressing the lack of seed capital for social business, they specialize in providing early-stage, seed-round financial capital along with management assistance, mentoring and expert advisory services. With a fully built and tested investment process, BCF’s aim is to foster sustainability and long-term social change for businesses that operate for the advancement of the base of the economic pyramid population. In working with TresVista, BCF has been able to add an extra layer of professionalism to its due diligence processes in order to ensure that the fund's capital is invested in the most legitimate and viable companies with strong promises of social impact.
"TresVista's pro-bono work with BCF has been a valuable addition to the BCF investment process. The TresVista team is informed and responsive regarding the financial analysis and due diligence work they complete on the early-stage social enterprises in the BCF portfolio. Furthermore, TresVista allows for BCF to leverage our own investment team and scale our knowledge and impact as a result. Because of TresVista's local Indian presence, the team is also able to overlay local knowledge of the companies being assessed. BCF is extremely proud of the relationship with TresVista – the team's skills are a perfect match to the BCF investment process."

TresVista has an affiliation with a local NGO named Hariyali, based in Thane. Hariyali works to upgrade and protect the environment by creating water harvesting solutions, and by nurturing and planting trees to increase green cover. TresVista has been helping their conservation efforts at Bhawale, a scenic hilly area on the outskirts of Thane since the first year of its inception. For the past 3 years, we have introduced our new Analysts to our CSR initiatives by taking them to a tree plantation drive wherein the entire Firm gets involved in activities like digging trenches, sowing seeds, hauling trees and saplings up and down hills.
Handmaids of the Blessed Trinity Convent Orphanage
Each year the batch of new Associates are taken to visit a local orphanage called Handmaids of the Blessed Trinity Convent Orphanage. The institution has 2 orphanages in Mumbai. The group makes it a point to interact with all the children by playing games; telling stories; drawing and painting; singing and dancing with them. The Firm and its employees donate toys, snacks, and funds to purchase supplies to maintain the orphanage.
"We, the sisters and children of H.B.T Convent school cum orphanage, appreciate your interest and love towards underprivileged children of society. We thank you for the creative programme of involving each and every child towards a holistic development. May you continue to give your service to the poor."
