Our vision is to enable people, animals and charities to be happier and healthier longer. It’s our belief that the prevalent consumption-oriented lifestyle is unsustainable and new ways have to be found to live in harmony and to preserve the planet.
We offer grants to selected long-term partners who dive to the root of problems, are accountable, and aim to make themselves redundant within a clear time frame.
We are committed to our grants and programs until at least 2025, allowing partners and initiatives to continuously fine-tune and stay focused on generating the highest possible impact within the next decade.
We kick-start and develop our own initiatives with promise for high impact, until a suitable partner can take them them to the next level.
Tangible impact is at the heart of everything we do and how we measure the success of our endeavors. We are actively involved in our projects, providing consultancy and support, and periodically reevaluating them to ensure their relevancy.
With incentivized prizes and prestigious awards, we recognize the good being done and create social good which is more than the sum of its parts.
“We wanted to make the best for the most for the least.”Charles and Ray Eames

Croeni Foundation was set up by German born Jan Croeni, a serial entrepreneur-turned philanthropist who decided to contribute his time and energy to create a better world.
Based in Singapore, he is an active mentor, advisor and investor at start-ups and incubators, with a special focus on cause-related ventures, social enterprises and for-impact companies.
In his early thirties, Jan co-founded and managed companies which raised USD10+ million, exited with USD50+ million, went IPO (ASX:iBY, market capitalization of USD100+ million, 12/2013), and employed 250+ staff reaching out to millions of customers in Southeast Asia; all within a period of few years in diverse areas such as electric mobility, online shopping, and food delivery.
The biggest – and most interesting! – challenge, however, is giving back to society now.
To give away money is an easy matter and in any man’s power. But to decide to whom to give it and how large and when, and for what purpose and how, is neither in every man’s power nor an easy matter.Aristotle
