Howard Schultz and his wife, Sheri, signaled they are gearing up their philanthropy by hiring Daniel Pitasky, a Gates foundation veteran, in October 2013 to run their family foundation. Mr. Pitasky, the grant maker’s fist executive director, will be working to expand the organization’s efforts. Since his hiring, the foundation launched two notable programs - Onward Veterans (with a $30,000,000 investment) and Onward Youth.
Prior to hiring Pitasky, Schultz’s foundation gave piecemeal grants of a few hundred or a few thousand dollars to a wide range of community, educational, and Jewish organizations, many of them based in Seattle.
Among organizations the Schultz foundation has supported in the past: Jewish Family Service in Seattle, the Robin Hood Foundation, and YouthCare, a Seattle nonprofit helping homeless youth.
