Letter from the Founders
We began the Webb Family Foundation in 2004 to give back to the world. Since that time, we have supported educational organizations that encourage young people, especially those who have encountered obstacles, to dream big and achieve more than they ever thought possible.
In recent years, we realized we had an opportunity to grow our foundation in terms of asset size and impact. This, within the context of a global pandemic, an unexpected health diagnosis in our family, and a series of heightened climate events in our region and worldwide, drove us to want to do more and expand our family foundation. While we’ve been doing good work for two decades, we realized the time is right to evolve our philanthropy.
To that end, we spent 2022 revising our collective strategy. Our two-generation board worked collaboratively to identify our collective core values, a vision for the world we want to live in and how our family will work together, and a mission that elevates our reach and our potential impact.
Today, the Foundation has broadened its mission to work across education, sustainability, and health. We are excited about these new areas of work, and we’ll continue to iterate over time. As philanthropists, as investors, and as community leaders, we hope to do our part in making sure people persevere and the planet thrives—for today, and for future generations.
