Our Vision



We believe in bold ideas that create enduring impact in the areas of environmental conservation, patient care and science. Gordon and Betty Moore established the foundation to create this change around the world and at home in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Our environmental conservation efforts promote sustainability, protect critical ecological systems and align conservation needs with human development. Patient care focuses on eliminating preventable harms and unnecessary health care costs through meaningful engagement of patients and their families in a supportive, redesigned health care system. Science looks for opportunities to transform—or even create—entire fields by investing in early-stage research, emerging fields and top research scientists. In addition we support conservation and science and technology museums in the San Francisco Bay Area, which has provided for the quality of life that Gordon and Betty Moore have enjoyed with their family.
