Social Entrepreneurs Driving Large
Scale Change

The Skoll Foundation drives large-scale change by investing in, connecting, and celebrating social entrepreneurs and the innovators who help them solve the world’s most pressing problems.


By identifying the people and programs already bringing positive change around the world, we empower them to extend their reach, deepen their impact, and fundamentally improve society on a local to global scale.


Since 1999, the Skoll Foundation has led the charge for social entrepreneurship, buoyed by the knowledge that social entrepreneurs are the world’s best bet for solving some of world’s thorniest problems.


The Skoll Foundation has invested approximately $400 million worldwide, including the Skoll Award to 122 social entrepreneurs and 100 organizations on five continents.
