Indigenous communities empowered to sustainably preserve their unique local environment and culture.



AlliancExchange creates opportunities to advance education for children and young people and for economic development in rural indigenous communities of the rainforest and beyond through direct scholarships, other targeted financial support, and partnering with local and international organizations.

We strive to help prepare the next generation to be stewards of their communities, environment and culture.


AlliancExchange (The Alliance for Cultural and Economic Exchange) is a 501(c)3 founded in 2003 and based in Concord, Massachusetts.
