Impact Fund

Good Deed Impact Fund is the first venture philanthropy fund in Estonia. We help to launch and scale impactful initiatives that solve pressing problems in the Estonian society. We work with complex issues in education, social inequity, public health and environment.

 

We are looking to work with 4-6 impactful initiatives in the next three years providing both financial and non-financial support from a dedicated team and pro-bono experts. Together with entrepreneurs and enterprises that care for our future, the state and leaders in social change we drive for positive and lasting impact.

  • have a strong team,
  • have a working financing model,
  • benefit from capacity-building.
