Skoll Foundation

Communicating the impact of social entrepreneurs


The Situation

The Skoll Foundation invests in, connects, and celebrates social entrepreneurs and innovators who are working to solve the world’s most pressing problems. The Foundation seeks to elevate and amplify the work of their entrepreneurs within a changing media and digital landscape.

Our Role

Resource Media is the Foundation’s agency of record, providing support on media strategy and outreach, digital strategy and implementation, and thought-leadership opportunities. We provide media and digital strategy, implementation, and analysis for the Skoll World Forum in Oxford, England where nearly 1,000 of the world’s top innovators convene every year. We also support grantees with coaching and counsel to help them strengthen their communications strategies to build support for their work.

The Impact

Resource Media has secured coverage in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, NPR and other top-tier news outlets for the Foundation and its social entrepreneurs. We have developed communications and digital strategies that have substantially increased visibility and engagement across nearly every communications channel for the foundation and its grantees.
