About The Jay Moriarity Foundation

Founded in 2001 by Kim Moriarity, the Jay Moriarity Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization created in the spirit of her late husband and legendary big wave surfer,  Jay to positively affect our communities, our environment, and our children. We support worthy causes that directly benefit the environment, children and inspire everyone to “Live Like Jay”.

Our core values and beliefs:

  • Children are our future and deserve love, support, and education. We strive to help families when they are in a storm through our Angel Warriors for Kids program.
  • Our environment is in need of help! Our global community is in dire need of education and awareness to enable and motivate everyone to make sustainable choices in their day-to-day lives.
  • There is more than enough negativity in the world. The world needs an army of positive people making a positive impact on their community and the environment every day.


"Don't take anything for granted, because one minute it can be there and the next minute it can't... and it happens so quick. When the negative stuff comes around, just let it go. It all leads to the positive as long as you keep a positive attitude..." - Jay Moriarity
