• Description

In 2008, Jeff Skoll set out to test whether a limited-life organization with $100 million and a band of driven and skillful "threat-ologists" could make progress against five of the gravest threats to humanity—climate change, pandemics, water security, nuclear proliferation, and conflict in the Middle East. After spending down the original $100 million gift, the SGTF experiment is now coming to an end. However, Jeff Skoll's philanthropy and commitment to global threats will continue. The work is being reorganized, spun out, and unified with Jeff's core philanthropic enterprise, the Skoll Foundation.
