Utilizing highly specialized skills for the public good

About us

Wahltinez Foundation was founded by Oscar and Sarah Wahltinez. Both have a passion for learning new things and improving areas of great public interest such as technology literacy, applications of A.I., animal welfare and wildlife research.

Our Mission

Our goal at Wahltinez Foundation is to empower individuals that have highly specialized skills to work for the benefit of the public. There are a lot of individuals with skills that are either under-utilized or that only benefit the private industry. We help steer those individuals towards advancement of the greater good by giving them a sense of purpose and direction.

Our Organization

Wahltinez Foundation is a non-profit*, private operating foundation. It is recognized as an unincorporated, non-profit association in the state of California. Improvement in areas of public interest has always been of concern to our members, and the formation of this foundation is only a formality in the pursuit of that.
