Committed to Improving the World

The Dr. Scholl Foundation was established by William M. Scholl, M.D. in 1947, almost 40 years after he founded the foot care company. It is a private, independent grant-making foundation for charitable purposes.

Throughout the history of The Scholl Manufacturing Company, Dr. William M. Scholl had an international vision for his company. Long before companies spoke of “globalization” or “multinationals,” Dr. Scholl had established manufacturing and retail operations throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. His global vision realized that commerce, exchange, and dialogue could serve to bring the world closer together and improve the lives of his employees and customers.
