Quadrivium invests at the intersection of society's challenges — where single actions can create multiple positive impacts.
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
Quadrivium supports programs that create both prosperous communites and innovation in the sustainable use of resources.
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.
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.
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.
