The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation
works to find and support the bold ideas that will create an enduring impact in
environmental conservation, science, and patient care.
The opportunity to create lasting,
meaningful change drives our team members and our approach to the work: we
establish specific strategies based on input from experts in the sectors where
we work, identify partners who share our goals and measure results along the
way–all while making adjustments as needed. We build relationships and fund
work in areas where we hope to make a significant impact, build and leverage
knowledge within key fields and create networks intended to drive
collaboration, learning and adaptation. We’re OK with failing, as long as we
learn from our mistakes. And we know that working together expands our ability
to drive meaningful change.
We welcome ideas that map to the goals
that we’re striving to reach–and the enduring impact that we’re working to
create around the world and here at home.
We focus on work in the three areas that
our founders are committed to improving: environmental conservation, science,
and patient care. In addition, we support land conservation in the San
Francisco Bay Area, which has provided for the quality of life that Gordon and
Betty have enjoyed with their family.
