Making a

We are witnessing a fundamental breakdown of the American Dream, where division, hate and exclusion have replaced respect, mobility and compassion.

We must all ask ourselves: Will we allow one’s place in life to be determined by the zip code of one’s birth? Will we turn our backs on those who have served our country yet find decent work out of reach? Will we settle for an America where only a few have access to first starts and a fair shot?

We all share the same dreams—to love and be loved, to find and pursue our purpose and to provide for our families. Yet, we are living in an America where potential is within all of us, but opportunity may be out of reach.

The Schultz Family Foundation is committed to lifting the human spirit and bringing possibility to everyone, regardless of skin color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, or station in life. We see our nation’s challenges, but we also see solutions. If we work together to unlock potential across our communities, we can build a nation that lives up to its promise.

Love isn’t just an emotion—It’s an action. It animates, inspires and motivates everything we do. The love we have for ourselves. The love we have for our communities. The love we have for our country.



Humility holds the power to reveal the potential inherent in all of us. It empowers us to see everyone as a teacher, to learn continuously, and to live a life in service of others.



Change is only possible with courage—not only the courage to dream boldly about the future, but the bravery to take action and inspire others. The moral courage to do the right thing, not just the easy thing.



Our shared humanity is our most powerful source of connection and empathy. When our relationships are fractured, and our communities divided, nurturing this shared humanity is the key to our collective healing.



Community—in all of its forms—uplifts us, sustains us, and inspires us. As individuals, and as a country, we’re only as strong as our communities are joyous, empowered, and inter-connected.
