Quantedge Foundation aims to deliver impactful solutions to social issues and challenges, including the relief of poverty and the advancement of education.
To this end, we focus our resources on areas where the Foundation can achieve the largest amount of social good per dollar spent. We curate, design and/or fund programmes and research to understand the root causes and underlying issues behind some of the social challenges in Singapore and the United States, and partner like-minded organisations to pilot innovative and scalable solutions that could bring about long-term, sustainable changes to the social sector.
Our programmes have focused on helping disadvantaged families break out from inter-generational poverty and giving every child or youth an equal opportunity to maximise his/her potential, regardless of his/her socio-economic background. We have also supported efforts to promote a more inclusive and caring society, by raising awareness of vulnerable communities and seed-funding projects to meet their diverse needs. Some of the programmes we have designed or supported include:
