A Little About Us 

The Scheidel Foundation invests in two primary fields of interest:  organizations that promote college readiness and completion, and organizations that advance the practice of integrative medicine. Grants are awarded primarily in Jacksonville/St. Augustine (Duval and St. Johns Counties), Florida; Sarasota, Florida; and the Washington, DC, metro area (including Arlington and Alexandria, VA).


The hallmark of the Scheidel Foundation is its personal touch, emanating from the passionate involvement of family members supported by staff who work very closely with the family. The Scheidel family and Foundation staff feel blessed to be enriched by the lives they touch through the work of the Foundation.
