Philanthropy in Anguilla
The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation now supports the island of Anguilla located in the West Indies. Florida Director, Mary Beth Geier, partnered with the Anguilla Community Foundation to identify support needs in medicine and education on the island. The ribbon cutting for the placement of the new MRI machine took place on March 1, 2023, and the daily school lunch program through the Department of Education (pictured left) is underway. We have now awarded over $700,000 in support.
