“A Unique Funding Model for Social Change is Needed for the Unique Times We Find Ourselves In”
Marvin J. Schmidt, Co-Founder of Expand Hope

Each business possesses a latent potential to change the world for the better. Our founders, The Schmidt Investment Group, have unlocked this potential.

An award-winning multi-family office and wealth management practice in Canada, The Schmidt Investment Group, directs 100% of their investment management revenue for the first 18 months of each new client relationship to our organization. We then use 100% of these funds to build schools in the developing world in honour of The Schmidt Investment Group’s new clients.
