What does the Murdock Trust fund?  Our grantees do extraordinary things and we are drawn to pursuits that rebuild and renew, innovate, transform, and strengthen.  Our previously awarded grants tell a clear story of our grant making and can also help you determine if your proposed projects fits within the general scope of our funding priorities.

The Murdock Trust makes grants that enrich life in the Pacific Northwest; a statement by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust.
