We are Estonia’s first and only strategic philanthropy organisation.

Heateo tiim on väike, aga võimekas ja meie südameasi on luua tegutsemiseks vajalikud tingimused tõeliselt mõjusatele ühiskondlikele algatustele.

The Good Deed Foundation was founded in 2003 by Artur Taevere and Hannes Tamjärv. We launch and grow high-impact initiatives by supporting them over a 3-5 year period, both financially and in-kind (consultancy, pro bono experts and volunteers). We operate thanks to long-standing supporters and partners who financially support Good Deed. Each year, we involve volunteers with different experiences and expertise in our activities and connect them with initiatives that effectively address acute problems in Estonian society.
