Based on the idea that all children deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential, Ben Stiller founded the Stiller Foundation in 2010. The Foundation seeks to promote the well-being of children worldwide through initiatives that support education.
To date, the Stiller Foundation has focused primarily on improving educational opportunities for children in Haiti by rebuilding schools. In the wake of the January 2010 earthquake, the Foundation has supported Architecture for Humanity, a non-profit design services firm, and their Haiti Schools Initiative, as well as the Digicel Foundation, to construct or repair eleven schools around the country. Since 2011, the Stiller Foundation has worked in close partnership with Artists for Haiti to support these and other reconstruction efforts.
