Skees Family Foundation works to end poverty by partnering with social entrepreneurs building self-help models in education and job creation and leveraging storytelling for social change.
Our family (about 40 members across 3 generations) believes intention matters — and that we all can change the world, one hour, one dollar at a time. We envision a world in which every global citizen has the opportunity to lead a healthy, productive, peaceful, and self-determined life. Our goal: opportunity for all.
