FPR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that seeks to unleash Puerto Rico’s potential in the global economy, so more people can live, visit, work, and invest in our beautiful island. Our targeted economic development and resilience programs work hand in hand with our community partners, providing resources, training, funding, and networks that improve the local economy from within.
We go from knowledge to action, combining innovative, data-driven thinking with strong field-based work across more than 32 communities. We’ve supported over 600 small businesses and collaborated with over 100 local and national NGOs. Our mission control runs out of El Colaboratorio, an 8,700-square-foot facility in the heart of Santurce equipped to foster collaboration, sharing new ideas, and creating synergies among other NGOs—all united by the goal of transforming Puerto Rico. Our motto, “there is no future in rebuilding the past,” reflects our transformative vision and dream for the future of our island: a prosperous Puerto Rico that unleashes the talent, creativity and passion of its people.
Our collaborative approach to problem-solving is what’s made us a trusted and reliable partner and recipient of a number of prestigious federal and public grants from entities such as the USDA Rural Development Agency, the US Economic Development Agency, the Kauffman Foundation, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Support from these partners allows us to operate our programs with the highest compliance standards.
