About the Mozilla Foundation

The Mozilla Foundation was established in July 2003 as a California not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the public benefit. The Mozilla Corporation was subsequently established in August 2005 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Foundation to coordinate the development and marketing of Mozilla technologies and products.

The Mozilla Foundation is guided by the principles of the Mozilla Manifesto.

The Mozilla Foundation's view–as of March 2007–as to how it can advance the Mozilla Manifesto is set out in its Statement of Direction.

The Mozilla Foundation is currently looking for an executive director to continue and expand upon the Foundation's activities to date.


The Mozilla Foundation is a California non-profit corporation exempt from Federal income taxation under IRC 501(c)(3). It is governed by its Board of Directors.
