Skoll Provides Major Support to Benetech!

I am so happy to report that we are receiving over $1.2 million in support from the Skoll Foundation. Jeff Skoll's foundation has been one of our significant supporters over the past few years, but this reflects a quadrupling of their annual general support levels for us, compared to the last two years. The Benetech team is very excited about what this means for us and the communities we serve.

And, I'll be going to Oxford at the end of this month to the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship to accept the award on behalf of the Benetech team. Here's the press release from Skoll announcing all of this year's Skoll Award winners: Skoll Foundation Awards $16 Million to Nonprofits Around the World in Support of Social Entrepreneurship.
