The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation (RMSFF) was created in 2004 by Best Buy founder Dick Schulze as a way to give back to the community where he and his family grew up and where he built Best Buy to become the world’s largest consumer electronics retailer. Schulze and his family believe that an excellent education, a supportive family and a strong work ethic prepare children for a successful future. To support that belief, the RMSFF supports organizations operating in the areas of human and social services, education, health and entrepreneurship. The RMSFF is driven to improve the lives of others, particularly U.S. middle- and working-class families, through results-oriented investments. Regarding his involvement with the Catholic Schools Center of Excellence, Schulze and his foundation board are committed to achieving excellence in the schools and to making a Catholic-school education available to children and families who want it, regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds.
