Self-Description: Established in September 2000, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life for future generations. The Foundation’s science-based, results-driven orientation stems from the principles and interests of Gordon and Betty Moore. The Foundation operates proactively in three specific areas of focus—environmental conservation, science, and the San Francisco Bay Area—where a significant and measurable impact can be achieved. Distinct Initiatives have been created within these three Program areas. An Initiative employs a portfolio of grants that are expected to help achieve targeted, large-scale outcomes in a specific time frame.

Actual: Systematically opposes fossil fuels; has donated millions to destroy the oil, gas and coal industries in America. In 2005, Moore Foundation gave the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership a $600,000 grant "To change the current course of energy development on public lands." The intent was to stop all drilling for natural gas and oil.

Origin of the Wealth: Gordon Moore is co-founder of Intel Corporation and Chairman Emeritus of the Corporation's Board of Directors. Prior to Intel, Gordon co-founded Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957. A California native, Moore earned his B.S. in chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley and his Ph.D. in Chemistry and Physics from the California Institute of Technology. In 1968 he co-founded Intel, serving initially as executive vice president. He became president and chief executive officer in 1975 and held that post until elected chairman and chief executive officer in 1979. In 1987 he relinquished the CEO title and was named chairman emeritus in 1997. Moore received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, from George W. Bush in 2002. He received the National Medal of Technology from President George H. W. Bush in 1990. He is currently the chairman of the executive committee for Conservation International.
