Where is my donation going?

Quintessentially Foundation is a charitable foundation set up to tackle child poverty and the limitations it places on the futures of children and young people. We do this by finding, funding and supporting small frontline charities well-positioned to make a big difference.

Small frontline charities often have some of the best solutions to society's biggest problems. However, they are often overlooked and underfunded. So, through our flagship programme, ‘The Firefly Project', we scale our charity partners’ successful interventions for young people, tackling child poverty in all forms, by providing the charities with:

Unrestricted funding - so that our partner charities can invest in increasing their internal capacity and prepare for growth.

Tailored organisational support – ensuring they develop the proper infrastructure for their model to increase the number of young people they support and optimise the quality of their impact.

Untapped networks and connections – so that they can have more supporters amplifying their cause and, most notably so that they can continue to grow sustainably once our funding ends.
