The Moxie Foundation is a family foundation focused on enriching communities and empowering changemakers through the spirit of innovation. We work with organizations around the world, while also maintaining a deep commitment to our local San Diego community. Each of our family members brings unique passion and expertise to the foundation, bound by our common commitment to social change. Together we partner with trailblazers in the field who are tackling challenges in education, the environment, health and global development.

The Moxie Foundation takes a personal approach to grant making. We do not accept proposals, rather we work deeply with a network of close partners to live out our mission. Learn about some of our key featured partnerships here:
