The Lindbergh Foundation Believes that Innovative Science and Technology Hold the Key to Addressing Humanity’s Environmental and Productivity Challenges

Vision

The Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Foundation has grown from roots in the grandest technological invention of modern history -- human flight -- and from the beginnings of a profound realization of philosophy -- that we humans are responsible for the health of our planet. Those two threads of aspiration and concern are represented by the goals of the man and woman this Foundation honors.

Often these threads of flight and Earth are seen to be in conflict -- technology versus nature. The Lindbergh Foundation sees it differently. We believe in the need for balance, in which the weight of neither of these ideas overwhelms nor suffers from the weight of the other, and the combination lifts us to achievement. We believe humans are toolmakers by nature, and that saving the planet and building a better future for all life requires us to value, refine, use, and adapt the greatest of inventions to serve the greatest of needs.

Through our past we are uniquely prepared to understand that balance, and through our experience and goals we are uniquely equipped to help find it.

Mission

The Lindbergh Foundation believes that innovative science and technology hold the key to addressing humanity’s environmental and productivity challenges.

We celebrate, advocate and facilitate scientific and technological ingenuity by:
     •   Serving as a community resource for the exchange of information
     •   Fostering research, education, and special projects
     •   Communicating the importance of science and technological
          solutions for environmental challenges

About Our Mission

The Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Foundation, formerly The Charles A. Lindbergh Fund, was created in 1977, the 50th anniversary year of Charles Lindbergh's epic New York-to-Paris flight. It was originated by friends of the Lindberghs at The Explorers Club in New York City. General James H. Doolittle and Astronaut Neil Armstrong led the national effort, which established the non-profit organization.
 
Since its formation, the mission of the Foundation has been to improve the quality of life through a balance between technology and nature. The changing of the organization's name, which took place in 1994, honors Anne Morrow Lindbergh and recognizes that she and her husband shared the vision of this balance in their pioneering contributions in aviation, exploration, conservation, writing and philosophy.
 
The Foundation seeks to support present and future generations in working toward such a balance, that we may "...discern nature's essential wisdom and combine it with our scientific knowledge..." (Charles A. Lindbergh) and "balance power over life with reverence for life" (Anne Morrow Lindbergh).
 
We are the focal point for solutions for aviation environmental issues.  We celebrate, advocate and facilitate scientific and technological ingenuity by:
 
•  Serving as a community resource for the exchange of information
•  Fostering research, education, and special projects, and
•  Communicating the importance of scientific and technological solutions to environmental challenges
