Why It Matters

Strengthening environmental stewardship is a driving priority for our future generations. The Moore Charitable Foundation provides ongoing support for education programs — from local early childhood institutions and youth groups to regional scholarships and post-graduate collaborations — to inspire respect and passion for our natural world and to enact conservation strategies that will sustain our precious planet moving forward.

The Moore Charitable Foundation also engages with local communities and integral nonprofits such as hospitals, emergency services, food banks, public libraries, cultural and historical festivals, school districts, and historic museums. The health and wellbeing of our local communities is foundational to what we do.
