Karen Moyer
Co-founder
The Moyer Foundation
Karen Moyer and her husband, Major League Baseball pitcher Jamie Moyer, are widely recognized for 
their philanthropic work surrounding causes that aid children.  In 2000, Jamie and Karen founded The Moyer 
Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide comfort and support to children enduring a 
time of profound physical, emotional, or financial distress.  Predicated upon the Moyer’s passion and the 
community’s support, The Moyer Foundation has raised more than $20 million to assist over 225 different 
programs that directly serve the needs of children in distress.
 
In addition to supporting organizations through grants, The Moyer Foundation created and funds Camp 
Erin, the largest bereavement camp for children and teens, and Camp Mariposa, a camp for children affected by 
addiction in their families. It also supports many community partnerships, including The Gregory Fund (in 
partnership with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center) for early cancer detection research.
 
Karen is a versatile woman who excels as a business person, mother, wife, and philanthropist.  Her 
efforts to improve the community stretch beyond her commitments to The Moyer Foundation as she also serves 
as a board member for numerous health and children’s organizations.  Additionally, Karen is the owner of “Go 
Legs,” an indoor cycling studio in Florida.  She also founded and runs Magnolia Baseball Club, a youth baseball 
organization with the goal of developing young men ages 13-18 using the game of baseball as a tool for 
preparation in the areas of teamwork and life.
 
Karen has received many honors for her leadership and efforts to improve the lives of children including:
- National Hospice Foundation – Humanitarian Leadership Award
- Recognized as one of  the Top 100 women pioneers in Washington State
- Helen H. Jackson – Woman of Valor Award – presented by Hillary Clinton
 
Karen has a strong relationship with her eight children. In addition to their six natural children, the 
Moyers adopted two girls from Guatemala in 2008 and 2009. When each of the Moyers children turns 16, they 
will have the opportunity to go on a mission trip somewhere in the world. Karen has already taken her two 
oldest boys on mission trips to Guatemala and Africa. Karen is a 1987 graduate of the University of Notre Dame.
