We support high-performing educational institutions by invitation only. We also support other nonprofit organizations that offer effective learning experiences through tutoring, after school-programming, and camps. Reducing burdensome student loan debt for select, high-potential college students and their working-class families is one of our key objectives. Exceptional college students who pursue teaching careers are also important to us as is excellence in teaching and scholarship.

Dick Speaks to New Schulze Scholars
Even though his plans to attend college never materialized, Schulze became trustee and major donor of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota – the school where he enrolled before joining and serving full-time, active duty in the Air National Guard. In 1998, the University of St. Thomas awarded him an honorary doctoral degree. In 2000, Schulze and his late wife, Sandy, donated $50 million to St. Thomas founding the Schulze School of Entrepreneurship in Schulze Hall. Pictured above, Dick speaks about entrepreneurship with students at Florida Gulf Coast University, a foundation grantee.
