Quadrivium

Intro

SCROLL DOWN

Quadrivium invests at the intersection of society's challenges — where single actions can create multiple positive impacts.

Our Approach

SCROLL DOWN

We invest in practical, measurable solutions. 

Each initiative seeks out the root causes of problems and addresses at least two of the Foundation’s focus areas: 
Natural Resources, Science, Civic Life, Childhood Health and Equal Opportunity

Focus Areas

FOCUS AREAS

Natural Resources

SCROLL DOWN

As standards of living rise, increasing pressure is put upon finite natural resources. 

Quadrivium supports programs that create both prosperous communites and innovation in the sustainable use of resources.

Science

SCROLL DOWN

Scientific understanding allows us to make many decisions that are critical to our lives.

All too often, that understanding is left to others until a time of crisis. Quadrivium supports not only pure scientific research but also individuals and institutions focused on scientific communication. 

Civic Life

SCROLL DOWN

We believe that the health and diversity of our cities are of increasing importance as metropolitan populations continue to grow.

Quadrivium supports initiatives that increase access to public resources, encourage civic participation, strengthen local communities, and contribute to greater opportunities. We are particularly, though not exclusively, focused on New York City, our hometown.

Childhood Health

SCROLL DOWN

A growing body of research shows that

nutrition and environmental factors in the earliest years can have an impact not only on health but on achievement and income that can extend for generations.

Equal Opportunity

SCROLL DOWN

Women hold up half
of the sky.

We want that to be true everywhere.

Quadrivium focuses on education and opportunities for women and girls wherever this may have multiple positive impacts, and in particular within communities where significant oppression is evident. Grant applications welcome.
