Our Mission
 
The Manzanita Foundation engages in philanthropic activity regionally and globally. In alignment with our founder's entrepreneurial  spirit, we seek to establish and  support effective programs in areas where needs exist. Our philosophy is that the world is an interconnected place, and that people-regardless of their provenance-are more similar than they are different. Our programs reflect this diverse approach.

We emphasize and support training and education , which is correlated with greater community prosperity and individual empowerment. Since our inception, we have also supported scientific and medical projects, from basic research to clinical initiatives and field work. The Foundation backs the visual and performing arts, a vital part of any community.

We are also committed to animal welfare and wildlife conservation and have participated in several initiatives worldwide. The Manzanita Foundation strives to implement projects  in an  impactful  and efficient manner.
