The Scot celebrates 10 years in charge at Goodison Park next month and he has drawn praise for the way he has ensured Everton remain a competitive force in the Premier League on a limited transfer budget.
He has been mooted as a contender to take charge at Tottenham Hotspur, if Harry Redknapp leaves White Hart Lane at the end of the season to become England coach.
However, rather than jump ship to North London, Moyes wants the Toffees to emulate the progress Tottenham have made in recent years, providing chairman Bill Kenwright can secure fresh investment.
"I take pride in the fact that it's only in the last 10 years that Everton have really come back to life," Moyes told The People.
"The history of Everton has been great but I think in the decade I've been here I have established us as a top 10 Premier League club.
"It's been an incredible 10 years and I wouldn't swap them for all the difficulties we have had. Over most of those years we have been consistently competing against Tottenham but the last couple of years that has changed because of the investment they've made at Spurs.
"So it's my belief and hope that I will still be in the building when our time comes to make the same change Spurs have done.
"My chairman Bill Kenwright will need investment to make that happen and he is out there looking for it.
"But that prospect keeps me going here. Because I want the chance to be able to take Everton where Tottenham have gone.
"I don't want to leave this club then see someone else come in and get the chance to do all the things I've dreamed I could do here with the right investment."
He added: "I will know when I have taken the club as far as I can and I would hate to think I would overstay my welcome here at Everton. I hope I'd never be hanging around like a bad smell.
"I don't think it's quite that yet. The supporters can see what we are trying to do, even though we are in a bit of a transitional period."
