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 since 2001, our mission 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 bringing positive change around the world, we empower them to extend their reach, deepen their impact and fundamentally improve society. We are now one of the leading foundations in the field of social entrepreneurship. Over the past 13 years, we have awarded more than $358 million, including investments in 97 remarkable social entrepreneurs and 80 organizations on five continents around the world who are creating a brighter future for underserved communities.
