Good Deed Education Fund is a philanthropy fund founded by the new generation of Estonian entrepreneurs.

Founded by Taavet Hinrikus of Transferwise and Martin Villig of Bolt and has raised 1M EUR out of the gate, from about 30 Estonian entrepreneurs and tech companies.

We identified the following acute issues to address with the Education Fund:

  • The lack of appeal of the profession of teaching as the average age of teachers is constantly increasing.
  • Quality of school leadership (recruitment, leadership, culture and goal setting; empowering parents board).
  • The youth drop-out rate after the mandatory level (9 years); not graduating from the next education level.
  • The low levels of STEAM skills acquired from school.

Good Deed Education Fund is looking for initiatives that addresses these problems in a measurable way. Through the initiatives we will be looking for ways to increase the quality of education together with leaders from different sectors - public, private, third sector.
