Purpose & Values
As a family, we are dedicated to creating and sustaining a strong and vibrant Silicon Valley community. We seek to inspire current and future generations to steward family resources in service of others. As a family, we have established a deep legacy in Silicon Valley that includes a commitment to community and hard work. Our values seek to honor and promote this legacy:
- Active engagement. Building on a family tradition of engagement, we take active roles in our work and community, while empowering an exceptional professional team who shares our passion for effective work that drives results. Together, we desire to make a positive, tangible difference.
- Stewardship and accountability. We are committed to making the best use of time, opportunity and resources, generating long-term value that strengthens our community and strengthens families. We foster collaboration and recognize the value of trusted relationships and partnerships, achieving more effective solutions together than we would separately.
- Integrity and ethics. We endeavor to deal openly, honestly and fairly with our partners, team members and everyone we encounter.
- Innovation and risk-taking. To find entrepreneurial solutions to persistent challenges and problems, we take a long-term perspective and try new things and embrace risk—learning and adapting as we go.
