Founder Sharon Schneider was the founding Director of the Walton Personal Philanthropy Group, which provides services to the family of Sam and Helen Walton to support their individual philanthropic activities. She served as Executive Director of the Telluray Foundation in Colorado.
She was also co-founder and CEO of the tech startup Moxie Jean, an online marketplace for high quality, gently used clothes. Moxie Jean won a Chicago Innovation Award in 2013 and was a 2012 portfolio company of renowned tech accelerator Excelerate Labs (now TechStars Chicago). Moxie Jean was acquired by Schoola in 2015.
Before starting Moxie Jean in 2011, Sharon spent 12 years as a staff member and consultant to private foundations, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Pew Charitable Trusts, and dozens of small family foundations, on issues ranging from strategic planning and outcome management to engaging your family in philanthropy.
