• Honesty & Empathy

    We seek to be honest in all interactions with internal and external stakeholders and ask for the same in return. We are empathetic in designing our programs and processes and seek feedback often for continuous improvement. We trust in the expertise of our grantees and always assume the best motives.

  • Openness & Responsiveness

    We are committed to open communication with stakeholders and strive for timely and attentive response.

  • Learning & Improvement

    We believe in continuous learning and improvement, both in our grantmaking procedures as well as in our overall strategy. We collect, analyze, and act on data and feedback.

  • Service to Students

    Students are at the center of everything we do. As such, we invest in the schools and educators that produce the best results for students without regard to school type.

 

Please be advised the Riordan Foundation is undergoing a transition and updates to our mission & values will be available as soon as possible.
