About

Who We Are

Established in 2006 by Wendy and Eric Schmidt, The Schmidt Family Foundation works to restore a balanced relationship between people and planet. We partner with communities around the world in working for renewable energy, resilient food systems, healthy oceans and the protection of human rights.

The 11th Hour Project supports qualified 501(c)(3) organizations and social enterprises through grantmaking, impact investing and complementary resources, such as network-building, convening and strategic communications.

While we recognize that there are countless grantmaking opportunities that align with our program strategies and greater mission at 11th Hour Project, we do not accept unsolicited proposals and requests.
