Because Change Can’t Wait
For decades, Larry and Joyce Stupski have been committed to giving back to the communities they call home. As the former president and chief operating officer of Charles Schwab, Larry was passionate about using his success to create opportunities for others. Joyce, a longtime entrepreneur and former educator, shared this vision and established the spend down foundation in 2015 to amplify their commitment and honor Larry’s memory. Since Joyce’s passing in 2021, the foundation continues to carry on the couple’s legacy and Joyce’s vision for the spend down.
As a spend down foundation, the Stupski Foundation will invest all of our assets (approximately $250 million) in collaboration with community partners by 2029 to make the greatest possible change in our communities today. To make a significant impact that will last long after we close our doors, we focus on partners who primarily serve our communities in San Francisco and Alameda Counties and the state of Hawai‘i. We believe that when we work together with local institutions and community-based organizations to put ideas into action, we can ensure that every member of our community enjoys a life marked by dignity, connectedness, and caring.
