Eric L. Moore - Founder and CEO

Educate California

As founder of Educate California, Eric Moore has developed a charitable non-profit organization with a mission to ensure that all California foster and kinship care youth GRADUATE prepared for life after high school. Educate California serves 14 - 24 year old foster, kinship care and low-income students, their families and organizations that empower youth, by providing them with resources that historically would be provided by high school counselors.

Moore’s professional experience includes 12 years as a financial advisor with Wells Fargo Securities and subsequently with American Express Financial Advisors. In 1998, Moore founded Educate California and officially transitioned from advising families on financial issues to helping families prepare their children for college and career opportunities.

As a volunteer, Moore serves as a board trustee for the Phillips Graduate University. Moore also serves as advisory board member to the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA and the California State University, Graduation Initiative.

A native of Los Angeles, Moore studied Organizational Psychology at California State University, Long Beach. His personal interests include community empowerment, sports, the performing arts and his 3 dogs. Moore and his wife reside in Los Angeles, California - they have two adult sons.
