MarinKids has a set of core beliefs to guide our actions and activities. They are:

Equal Opportunity

Every child has a fundamental right to equal opportunities for education, health and wellbeing.

Collective Responsibility

It is our collective obligation as a community to provide equal access to opportunity for all our children.

Embrace Diversity

We are enriched through the cultural diversity of our community.


We must measure tangible change and hold ourselves accountable. This change requires action as well as resources from all sectors of the community: Voluntary, Institutional, Governmental, and Philanthropic.

Now is the Time

The time to act is now to assure our children have the expectation of a better life.

Marin Can

It is within our reach in Marin to provide opportunities for all our children.
