Former Member, Board of Trustees at Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation

The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation was created in 2004 by Best Buy founder, Dick Schulze. He wanted to give back to the community in which he and his family grew up and gave him so much in return. It is Dick's strong belief that a good education, supportive family and strong work ethic will prepare children for a successful future. To ensure families have the ability to be all they can be, the foundation focuses on the following areas: education programs, food, shelter, afterschool programs and camps. In addition, the unthinkable could happen and cause a crisis in a family, hindering their ability to a successful future. The Schulze family has been impacted by cancer and type 1 diabetes and understands the challenges families endure while battling a disease. Because of this experience, another focus of the foundation is in supporting the medical human service agencies that assist families with their initial transitional needs when dealing with a new medical challenge. The foundation focuses its work and grants in the Hennepin, Dakota & Ramsey Counties of Minnesota. Currently, we do not make grants outside of this area. Our vision is to connect in a significant way with chosen programs, making strategic contributions to achieve specific, measurable results enabling transformational change to benefit mankind.
