Our People


We're inspired by the innovation, compassion and focus of our founders. Gordon Moore's thinking was part of the birth of Silicon Valley. Betty Moore's commitment to improving the lives of patients is making a difference, today, in the care that many Californians receive. And the foundation's staff members strive to have similar impact in the world.

Our staff members are subject-area experts, and they know how to partner with folks who bring special knowledge and skills to the table. Our people plan, learn and adapt in a way that keeps them focused on making a difference in environmental conservation, patient care and science.

Learn more about the leadership of our board of trustees and the professional expertise of our staff members who contribute to the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s vision and goals. Our team of more than 90 people comes from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, and we are all united in the foundation’s belief in bold ideas that create enduring impact.
