The Noya Fields Family Fund was established by Ken Fields and Nikki Noya Fields and is maintained by the California Community Foundation to compliment and support a wide range of philanthropic endeavors focusing generally, but by no means exclusively, around two of the most pressing issues of today, the Environment and basic human civil liberties. While seemingly unrelated we see both as inextricably entwined – we have one planet and we all need to live here.
The global population and our needs within society will only continue to grow and we need to develop a better way to live more harmoniously and sustainably within the limits of our natural resources. We believe very strongly in supporting and promoting the transition to 100% clean and renewable energy sources.
Hand in hand with the environment, we still all inhabit the same planet. Basic human rights, the right to be equal among peers, to healthy living, to clean water, to free speech, to express ourselves, to decide what is best for ourselves are all inherent human rights.
Lofty ideals, but they provide a general framework for what we feel is important and act as a guide for our philanthropic endeavors.
