The foundation's mission is to advance the human experience while ensuring the well being of the earth. The foundation pursues this mission by making grants in four main program areas: 1) environmental conservation - to support conservation strategies that protect natural systems and to improve air quality for the benefit of human and ecological health; 2) nuclear nonproliferation - to limit the spread of nuclear weapons by providing reliable information to U.S. policy makers, the media, and the public; 3) reproductive health and rights - to support the right of women and men to be informed of and have access to safe, effective, affordable and acceptable methods of fertility regulation of their choice; and 4) criminal justice - to promote a fair and humane criminal justice system. In addition, the foundation makes a number of core grants that support the general philanthropic interests and goals of the foundation's directors and their family.
