Tent is mobilizing the private sector to improve the lives & livelihoods of more than 20 million men, women & children forcibly displaced from their home countries.
The Tent Foundation was founded by Hamdi Ulukaya. As founder and CEO of Chobani, and an active donor to humanitarian organizations, Hamdi launched Tent because he believes the private sector is uniquely positioned to address the refugee crisis by mobilizing the networks, resources, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit of the business community.
The Tent Foundation works closely with businesses to help them develop and implement concrete commitments to support and empower refugees. They believe that companies have the greatest impact when they treat refugees not as victims, but as economically-productive workers, suppliers, entrepreneurs, and customers — and when they leverage their core business operations to hire refugees, integrate them into supply chains, invest in refugees, and deliver services to them.
