Core Values

  • We seek to empower the disadvantaged and the excluded in efforts to bring about a more just and equitable world. We recognize their rights and leadership potential, as well as their abilities to advocate on their own behalf and to participate in all efforts to improve their lives, their communities and the world at large.
  • We respect and support our grantees, and work in partnership with them, providing a range of resources to develop their long-term institutional health and effectiveness.
  • We believe a fundamental role of government is to advance social and economic justice and protect human rights. We encourage our grantees to include policy advocacy among their strategies for promoting rights and improving the quality of life.
  • We take risks: we fund where others can’t or won’t, taking the lead on controversial, difficult and underfunded issues; we invest in new ideas, leaders, and strategies to test new approaches to complex problems.
  • We believe that diversity is essential to organizational creativity and strength; we challenge ourselves, our grantees and our colleagues to build more inclusive organizations -- at all levels -- and to value and benefit from the unique perspectives, history and voices that diversity brings.
  • We strive to build a community at Moriah that reflects our values for the world at large, fostering respect, diversity, growth and opportunity within our organization.
