Foundation Mission
The mission of the Tiburon Foundation is to seek a more fair, just, and equitable world by providing opportunities to and correcting inequities for disadvantaged people.

Guiding Philosophy
The guiding philosophy of the Tiburon Foundation is that people who are born into fortunate circumstances must honor all that they have received in life by recognizing that many people have not been so lucky, due to no fault of their own. The Foundation believes that it is the responsibility of those who are advantaged to challenge systems of privilege and to address inequities, especially those due to race, class, and gender. The Foundation believes in the moral imperative to carry out its mission by contributing to individuals, families, and organizations, both within our own community and in communities across the world.
