Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for higher education, conservation, and science; some giving also for local social services.


Established in 1986 - Founded by Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel Corporation who is widely known for his 1965 prediction that the number of transistors the semi-conductor industry would be able to place on a computer chip would double every two years. What was intended as a rule of thumb quickly became known as "Moore's Law" and a guiding principle for the delivery of ever more powerful computer chips at proportionately lower costs. Gordon and Betty Moore have committed to The Giving Pledge, and have pledged to give away at least half of their wealth to philanthropy
