About the Donor

Quantedge Foundation is a philanthropic foundation that supports a wide range of charitable causes in Singapore, with a strong focus on improving social mobility. Established by the principals of Quantedge Capital, the Foundation is registered as a Charity and has been an Institution of a Public Character in Singapore since February 2016.

Quantedge Foundation believes that every child or youth should have an equal opportunity to succeed. The Foundation’s current programmes focus on equalising access to education and other developmental opportunities, and improving social mobility. We work with partner organisations such as SIT to design programmes that alleviate unfavourable starting conditions in life and expand the opportunity set for underprivileged youth, as a pathway to lifting them and their families out of inter-generational poverty.

The Foundation has also supported efforts to promote a more inclusive and caring society, by raising awareness of vulnerable communities in Singapore and seed-funding projects to meet their diverse needs.
