When John Montgomery founded Bridgeway Capital Management in 1993 he gave the company a mission embracing the objective to “support charitable services, nurture educational services, improve the quality of community life, and oppose and alleviate the effects of genocide and oppression.” To facilitate the fulfilment of this mission, Bridgeway Foundation was created in December 2000. John is a board member of the Foundation, through which he carries out some of his most important life goals. These include giving back to the community, investing in future generations and building on the efforts of others for reconciliation, human rights and the fight against genocide. John joined the Board of Aegis as Chairman in September 2010. In January 2011, he served as an international election observer with the Carter Center in Juba, South Sudan.
