The Good Deed Education Fund promotes initiatives that tackle acute problems in Estonia’s education sector. The fund was founded under the leadership of new-generation entrepreneurs and companies Martin Villig, Taavet Hinrikus, Bolt, and Wise. To date, more than 60 companies and entrepreneurs have contributed to the fund with the wish to enact meaningful and lasting positive changes in education.

Good Deed Education Fund is looking to collaborate with initiatives that have the potential to shake up the existing education system in a good way and help it reach the next level. We will build strong links and partnerships with the initiatives that receive funding and provide substantive support to help them achieve their targets.
