Skoll Foundation

Jeff Skoll created the Skoll Foundation in 1999 to pursue his vision of a sustainable world of peace and prosperity. Led by CEO Sally Osberg from 2001 to 2018, and now led by Don Gips, the Foundation’s mission is to drive truly transformative change—equilibrium 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 bringing positive change around the world, we empower them to extend their reach, deepen their impact, and fundamentally improve society. The Skoll Foundation has invested approximately $530 million worldwide, including the Skoll Award to 135 social entrepreneurs and 111 organizations on five continents. Learn more at www.skoll.org
