About Us

PRxPR invests 100% of donations amongst the most critically affected communities. As a no-overhead fund, every dollar goes to work. Aid impacts short and long-term humanitarian needs focused on food/agriculture, clean water and fuel/renewable energy initiatives.

The partners and leaders of PRxPR are highly respected, Puerto Rican born and raised senior business professionals who bring diverse and extensive US and international experience in the key areas of operations, legal, financial, technology, government and marketing.
