Source of Funds Policy
The Sultan’s Trail Initiative is a global non-profit organization that has no political or religious agendas, while honoring all people, cultures, and faiths.

As such, the Initiative does not accept funds from sources seeking to advance political or religious agendas via their gifts. Moreover, the Sultan’s Trail Initiative does not accept money from governments that are intended to advance political purposes. Governments in countries along the Trail are strongly encouraged to support the development of the Trail in their nation, and advance local community ownership of their specific segments of the route. Any funds donated by host-country governments stay in their country and accrue directly to local projects.

A conscious choice has been made to reflect the qualities of inclusiveness and equality associated with Sultan’s Traıl when dealing with such sensitive issues as financial support. Under the rubric of inclusion and equality, the Initiative strives for diversity in its income sources and does not accept monies that would divide this unity. As testament to the diversity of sources, the Initiative has sought and garnered support from a wide array of foundations, organizations, and individuals from 21 countries around world.
