M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust

We are privileged to serve a region teeming with nonprofits that are working toward the betterment of their communities. Nonprofits from all sectors are addressing the varied needs of people in innovative ways, making it their goal to improve quality of life and create a thriving society.

In the arts, we see local community theaters instilling a love of the arts in children from a young age, music education programs being built online to allow access to learning for all, and world-class choreographers bringing creative dance to the stage in the Pacific Northwest.

In education, museums are expanding our worldviews and our knowledge of cultures around us, schools are teaching our youth about science and technology in new and creative ways, and wildlife centers are working to conserve at-risk ecosystems.

In health and human services, people in rural communities have life-saving access to healthcare, teenagers have access to safe and fun places to hang out after school with mentors, and individuals and families are given training and the opportunity to transition out of homelessness.

In scientific research, high school science teachers are learning cutting-edge research and bringing it back to their classrooms to instill a love of science in teenagers, groundbreaking research is being done to find a cure for cancer, and scientists are working toward the betterment of our planet through climate, water, and ecology research.

Change happens one interaction at a time, one moment at a time, one person at a time, and the organizations we partner with work toward change, in their own unique and creative ways, for a healthy and thriving society for all.
