Artur Taevere and Hannes Tamjärv founded the Good Deed Foundation in 2003. We are Estonia's first and only venture philanthropy organisation. We launch and scale initiatives with high societal impact, supporting them for 3-5 years, both financially and non-financially with know-how from a dedicated in-house team, pro-bono experts and partners.
We thank our long-term supporters, partners and experts who are making the changes happen with their time and knowledge.
Pirkko leads the Good Deed Foundation, works on strategic projects and with our supporters.
Kersti is managing the Impact Fund activities and she is the main contact for initiatives applying and already in the Fund.

Katrin is responsible for our communication and manages the "I love to help" donation platform.
Annually over 100 people from mostly private sector contribute their time and knowledge as pro-bono advisers and hands-on experts. They could be communication experts from the leading businesses, HR consultants from a leading advisory, lawyers from distinguished law firms, financial experts or multiple business owners. Good Deed Foundation involves a wide range of know-how and expertise to help organisations with high societal impact to grow. We are grateful for everyone who has supported our mission in the past 15 years!
Margus Rink: “Contributing my time to Good Deed Foundation makes me to get along with myself better. It is the constant “giving-receiving" topic. The world around me has given me a lot and continues to do so. Since I do not like to live in debt, I am happy to give back.”
If you want to help to solve societal problems please write to Kersti (email@example.com)!

Maarja Oviir-Neivelt: “I support because I believe! I believe in the spirit and commitment of the Good Deed Foundation. The work they do is needed. I see that ventures that can seem utopian - like attracting opinion leaders to give school lessons or business leaders tackle HIV - have been realized.
Partners support the Good Deed Foundation financially on a monthly basis. We involve partners with their knowledge and know-how to contribute to the work with initiatives. If you would like to join the network of our partners, please write to Pirkko (email@example.com).
