The Arthur B. Schultz Foundation
The Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life on earth by supporting small business entrepreneurs, women’s empowerment, and disabled mobility. The THRIIVE Program enables small business entrepreneurs to grow thriving businesses and empowers them to serve as catalysts driving self-sustaining economic growth and inspiring a culture of social responsibility. The Foundation works to advance the economic, social, and cultural situation of women and girls living in the developing world by supporting projects focused on education, economic empowerment, and human rights for women. Educated girls become empowered women who employ their increased knowledge and improved financial status to provide for their families and children so funding priority is given vocational and leadership training programs and support of women entrepreneurs. The Foundation also supports high quality educational programs focused specifically on helping girls to complete primary school and secondary education. The Foundation prefers to support smaller projects in rural areas and urban slums and in countries where it has an existing presence. Disabled mobility grants help to support independent in-country manufacture and repair shops building appropriate technology wheelchairs and ambulatory aids for the more demanding conditions of the developing world. Grants are also awarded to programs that distribute recycled and refurbished Western wheelchairs and early-childhood prevention and intervention measures.
