Established in 2006 by Wendy and Eric Schmidt, The Schmidt Family Foundation (TSFF) supports efforts worldwide that uplift communities to build resilient systems for food, water, and human health. Through community-, market- and technology-based approaches, TSFF promotes an intelligent relationship between human activity and the planet’s natural resources. TSFF pursues its mission through three, innovative and thoughtful strategies: 1) The 11th Hour Project; 2) the Impact Investment Program; and 3) Schmidt Marine Technology Partners. The Schmidt Family Foundation is a private foundation with growing assets of over $500 million and an impact investment portfolio of approximately $56M of AUM.
Impact Investing is a core piece of the Foundation’s mission — to fund new businesses and solutions that address global sustainability challenges on land and at sea. Investments align with the goals of the Foundation's grant making programs and address four areas: climate change mitigation, renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, and marine technology. The investment team funds both Mission Related Investments (MRIs) and Program Related Investments (PRIs).
