The goals of the foundation is to advance the educational and economic prospects of low-income Californians to share in and create California's prosperity; to engage a broad cross section of Californians in the civic and cultural life of their communities and the state; to enhance mutual understanding and communication among diverse, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups; and enrich the state's intellectual and creative environment.
