Southwestern Advantage Foundation’s aim is to contribute to young people’s entrepreneurship education and experience in the countries where Southwestern Advantage student program takes place. Since 2020 we are giving out our annual Greete Poderat Young Athlete Scholarship to support ambitious young athletes like Greete Poderat was. Greete passed away in 2019 when she was just 22 years old.
The idea of our annual scholarship is to encourage and support youth sports and career options in competitive sports. That’s why we support one young athlete with 1,200 euros. Southwestern Advantage Foundation also wants to help young people’s financial awareness: in addition to monetary support, 22-time Estonian champion Gerda Rand is offering the winner her personal mentorship. Gerda is an experienced coach and investor and she has coached competitive athletes before since she was competing at a high level in cycling for 8 years
In 2022 the scholarship was won by a talented ski jumper Kaimar Vagul.
In 2021 the scholarship was won by a young triathlete and winner of Rakett 69 competition Karl Mell.
In 2020 the scholarship was won by a young orienteer Mari Linnus from Audentes Sports Gymnasium.

Greete Poderat (18.05.1996-forever)
Greete Poderat was a special young person who passed away too early. She was talented and hard-working in sports and entrepreneurship. In memory of Greete, Southwestern Advantage Foundation awards the Greete Poderat Young Athlete Scholarship every spring.
Southwestern Advantage Foundation’s vision is to be the biggest charitable foundation in Eastern Europe that is built on investment principles and helping young people in obtaining knowledge and developing character so they can fulfill their dreams in life. We help European youth get better entrepreneurship education and offer investment knowledge to those who do not have the opportunity. We are working to reduce and prevent poverty.
We only donate money from the fund’s passive income by directing 50% of the return to charity and 50% back to the fund. That is how your good deed will remain giving forever.
