The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation (RMSFF) was created in 2004 by Best Buy founder, Dick Schulze, as a way to give back to the community where Dick and his family grew up and where he built Best Buy to become the world’s largest consumer electronics retailer. Schulze and his family believe that a good education, a supportive family and a strong work ethic prepare children for a successful future. To support that belief, we support education, basic human services, health and medical research and transformational entrepreneurship.
The Schulze Family Foundation looks to support educational institutions offering effective programs in reading, writing, math and science, tutoring and after school programs and camps. They also watch for high-achieving college students who pursue teaching careers and are committed to reducing burdensome school debt loans for students and their working class families.
They focus most of their grant-producing activities on non-profits serving working and middle class families in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington counties in Minnesota and in Lee and Collier Counties in Florida. Their vision is to connect in meaningful ways with grantees to make strategic contributions that achieve specific, measurable outcomes.
Children’s Cancer Research Fund invests in lifesaving, leading-edge research in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of childhood cancers and blood-related disorders.
Fueled by compassion since opening our doors in 1981, their team has revolutionized the way childhood cancer is treated worldwide. Their investments in key research initiatives and patient care have led to innovative treatments, faster cures, new discoveries and compassionate quality-of-life programs that give hope to pediatric patients and their families.
