Eligible projects and programs are those that benefit residents of Lee, Collier, Hendry, Glades, and Charlotte Counties in Florida and Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington Counties in Minnesota.


The Foundation supports high-performing educational institutions, by invitation only. The Foundation also supports other nonprofit organizations that offer rigorous and effective learning experiences through tutoring, after school-programming and camps. The Foundation is committed to reducing burdensome student loan debt for select, high-potential college students and their working-class families. The Foundation encourages exceptional college students to pursue teaching careers, and supports excellence in teaching and scholarship.

Human and Social Services: 

The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation and its Board are open to funding responsible and efficient human and social services agencies that demonstrate effective use of their resources. Funding possibilities include organizations working in the areas of hunger, shelter, emergency relief, domestic abuse, veteran and military families support and assistance with persistent medical challenges. The Foundation has a history of support for Hope Lodges and their positive impact on the treatment of cancer patients and their families.

Health and Medicine (by invitation only):  

The Foundation supports health-related investments with insight from its Health Care Advisers. 

In the current phase of the Foundation’s life, the family and the Foundation board have become interested in the great potential demonstrated by regenerative medicine and stem cell research. The Foundation, however, is not open to biomedical research LOIs or proposals through its website and would never fund research that used fetal stem cells. 

Research proposals are considered by invitation only and are referred to the Foundation’s board of Scientific Advisers for evaluation and recommendations to the board of trustees.
