The Mission Statement

The Quercus Foundation leverages its significant investment and fundraising expertise to improve the lives of children and young people living in extreme poverty. With a focus on health, education and infrastructure, we identify and invest in projects that make the most significant improvement to children’s lives in the long term.

The Foundation aims to establish an international portfolio of rigorously monitored and measured projects, which invest donor funds in the most effective way possible. Alongside its own projects, the Foundation works with local and national partners who help us to achieve positive and sustainable results for children.
