From Our Founder

Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett is the eldest daughter of the late Dr. C. David Molina, who founded the first Molina medical clinic (now serving individuals and families in 16 states) to help those who were uninsured, non-English speaking or of low income. Prior to Dr. C. David Molina’s decision to enter medical school, he and his wife, Mary, were elementary school teachers. Thus, Dr. Bernadett and her siblings were raised with a deep value for education and hard work. Over a decade ago, Dr. Bernadett and her husband started The Molina Foundation to honor her parents’ commitment to education – and the inextricable role education plays in health.

Leap Into Reading!


The Molina Foundation is excited to announce that it is partnering with Pearson and its Book Donation Program to bring over 600,000 new books and educational resources to children and families!

The partnership was launched with a special "Leap Into Reading" literacy event hosted by the Mexican American Opportunity Foundation in Montebello, California on February 29, 2016 (Leap Day). To celebrate, children participated in fun and engaging reading activities and took home ten brand new books to help build their own home libraries.
