One School at a Time!
Founded and supported by The Schmidt Investment Group, Expand Hope is a Canadian registered charity that is helping to change the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in the world through the provision of schools and power of education.
The Schmidt Investment Group is an award-winning multi-family office and wealth management practice in Canada. On a mission to simplify the wealth of their clients, their business philosophy extends beyond financial and investment responsibilities to include the belief that businesses have the power to create and foster global social change.
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 use 100% of these funds to build schools in the developing world in honour of The Schmidt Investment Group's new clients.
Our unique funding model enables our community to positively impact the lives of thousands of children in Guatemala who lack access to quality education through the provision of Expand Hope schools while creating a personal and lasting legacy for clients of The Schmidt Investment Group.
Our Board of Directors
and Our Leadership Team
Each board member comes from their own walk of life, bringing their own unique expertise, skills, and thoughtful knowledge, to help accomplish Expand Hope’s mission.
We could not do what we do without our global field partners Food for the Hungry, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to facilitating sustainable, community development in order to bring about long-term change for those living in poverty.
Every Dollar Towards Impact
Our overhead and operational costs are covered by private sponsors. We use all funds directed to us to give children in the developing world a chance for a brighter future through education.
