About the Foundation

Our Vision

The Claude Moore Charitable Foundation is an organization recognized for instigating programs and partnerships aimed at increasing academic competence and encouraging leadership abilities, with an emphasis on the underprivileged.

Our Mission

The Mission of the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation is to provide assistance exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.

Our Goals

Help the talented and underprivileged (culturally and economically) in our society to maximize their opportunity for educational advancement through literacy and advanced education.

  • Focus on broadening perspectives and opportunities in early education intervention
  • Emphasize self-help, local initiatives, and fresh and creative new areas
  • Select and manage educational grants through a business-like model
  • Expand opportunities for students in general education, in healthcare education and career planning through the Claude Moore Scholars Program.

Give’em a leg up not a handout.
