Think! Foundation

Welcome to the Think! FoundationWelcome to the Think! Foundation.

Think! Foundation (full name: THINK! Knowledge Society Foundation) was established in 2007 in Warsaw, Poland. It is a non-profit non-governmental organisation majoring in the fields of social communications and education. In October 2013 it merged with another Polish non-profit foundation, the Education Now Foundation, and further operates under the brand name of the Think! Foundation.

Think! Foundation was established by people with unique experience in education. Its founders have designed and implemented dozens of educational programs for schools and adults; at local and nationwide levels.

The aim of the Think! Foundation is supporting the development of young people and adults through educational programs and information and communication technologies. Among others we:

  • design and implement innovative forms of learning (e-learning, m-learning) through various educational programs and initiatives (with broad use of ICT in line with the SAMR concept);
  • strengthen and develop 21st Century competences among society members (incl. planned use of ICT tools and mass media);
  • support entrepreneurship of young people and assist them on their path to own company;
  • monitor global trends in education and develop analytical work for the development of the education system in Poland.

The most important target groups for Think! Foundation are students at schools and universities, and teachers.

Our primary fields of interest are:

  • economic, financial and entrepreneurship education
  • consumer and civic education
  • teachers' training and development
  • digital education
  • development (evolution) of the education system


In cooperation with the Citi Foundation and the Kronenberg Foundation, we run one of the largest economic education program for youth - Saving Week Poland (since 2007). In years 2016-2018 it was expanded and now focus on both economic education and entrepreneurship of youth (yet named Saving Week - Youth Entrepreneurship Program). As a result of that we have helped to establish already 24 new companies led by young entrepreneurs. We are also active in the area of coding and ICT education. As the operator of the program, we help the Orange Foundation Poland to run SuperCoders nationwide educational initiative addressed to primary schools across Poland. We are also co-organiser of large nationwide series of conferences for teachers INSPIR@CJE. Every year over 700 teachers participate in our inspirational events for innovative educators. Currently we run several projects financed from EU programs.

We focus a lot on multimedia educational content and virtual learning. We often use movies, blogs, multimedia presentations, e-learning courses on a mass scale. We have a library of over 1000 educational movies created by students. In the past we have been using edutainment programs in cooperation with mass media to get to public opinion with economic education issues. We know how to use the potential of social internet and ICT tools to communicate educational message to the society.

Think! Foundation is also active on the international level. We are a part of the European consortium of organisations that help to develop the European Comission's portal for consumer education: One of ERASMUS program, EDUSPACES 21, where Think! was the Partner in the consortium, was granted the title of "success story" by a panel of experts from the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture of the European Commission. We used to present results from Polish economic and financial education programs during many international conferences (eg. Warsaw, Gdańsk, New Delhi, Moscow, Volgograd, Washington, Toronto). We are open to enter new programs and initiatives on the international level.

In co-operation with the Superbelfrzy (Superteachers) nationwide informal group of teachers (over 300 across Poland) - we organise training courses for teachers and develop their ICT and communication competences. The idea of the training is based on sharing of knowledge and experience, from active expert teachers to other active teachers.
