Skoll Foundation

The Skoll Foundation presents the Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship each year to a select few social entrepreneurs whose proven innovations have demonstrated impact on some of the world’s most pressing problems. The Skoll Award recognizes organizations with the potential to not only be individually successful, but also to catalyze large-scale, system-level change.
We fund organizations that focus on one or more of the following areas:
Deforestation
Education and Economic Opportunity
Effective Development
Healthcare Access and Treatment
Smallholder Productivity and Food Security
Peace and Human Security
Sustainable Markets
Water and Sanitation
Skoll provides funding to grantees, along with connection to Skoll’s network of 900-plus social entrepreneurs and other innovators who attend the annual Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship in Oxford. This connection to other social innovators extends year-round through the Skoll World Forum Online.
