Scott Fitzmorris is co-chair of the Wallace Global Fund, a prominent supporter of left-wing causes, particularly environmentalist groups.
In January 2022, Fitzmorris was named one of the “most powerful heirs in philanthropy” by Inside Philanthropy. 
Family and Education
Scott Fitzmorris is the great-grandson of Henry A. Wallace, a prominent New Deal-era politician who served as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture and Vice President under President Franklin Roosevelt. 
Fitzmorris is related to Scott Wallace, a grandson of Henry Wallace, the heir to the Hi-Bred Corn Company, and a former Democratic Party candidate for U.S. Congress. Scott Wallace serves as co-chair on the Wallace Global Fund.  
In 1999, while still attending Hampshire College, Scott Fitzmorris invested in Predatorwear, a ski attire company founded by his roommate, Mark Kendrick. The two ran the company until 2002 when they stepped into secondary roles.  Fitzmorris left the company in 2010. 
Fitzmorris was formerly a competitive skier. In 2003, he finished fourth in the national freestyle selections, a qualifying race for the U.S. World Cups.  In 2021, Fitzmorris raised $6,300 for charity by coming in in second place at the Mothership Classic in Olympic Valley, California. 
Wallace Global Fund
In January 2011, Scott Fitzmorris became co-chair of the Wallace Global Fund along with Scott Wallace.  In 2019, the Fund spent $18.3 million on charitable disbursements, with funds going to liberal advocacy groups including the Center for Responsive Politics, Democracy Now!, the Hopewell Fund, NEO Philanthropy, the Tides Foundation, and the U.S. Climate Action Network. 
In 2018, in response to the policies of President Donald Trump, Fitzmorris announced that the Wallace Global Fund would be contributing all its endowment gains from the previous year into social and environmental advocacy groups. The decision reportedly doubled the Fund’s grantmaking budget to $10 million. 
Green New Deal
Scott Fitzmorris is a proponent of the Green New Deal. In a 2019 article, Fitzmorris and Scott Wallace argue that climate change is a major threat facing humanity, and like the Great Depression, it is caused by “basic corporate greed —enabled by a supine federal government.” Like President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, which was partially crafted by Fitzmorris’s great grandfather, Henry Wallace, the Green New Deal proposes to combat climate change through major government interventions into the economy to restrict pollution and encourage weather-dependent energy sources.
