Skoll Foundation at a Glance

Jeff Skoll created the Skoll Foundation in 1999 to pursue his vision of a more peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world.

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

Social entrepreneurs are society’s change agents—creators of innovations that disrupt the status quo and transform our world for the better. By identifying the people and programs already enacting positive change throughout the world, the Skoll Foundation empowers them to extend their reach, deepen their impact, and fundamentally improve society.
