The Murdock Trust is proud to partner with nonprofit organizations all across the Pacific Northwest serving unique and diverse constituencies. Recently, three grantees announced Murdock awards.
The construction project is already under way on land owned by KCAM. The original KCAM studio building – built in 1963 – has been moved onto a new foundation and will be renovated into a three-bedroom, two-bath home. The basement will be made into two apartments for short-term volunteers. Several volunteer construction crews from Pennsylvania and Alaska have completed work so far.
Chellie Skoog has been named the new Vice President of Programs for The Foraker Group. Chellie is already familiar to many Foraker Partners. She has been teaching and consulting with us since 2013. Her specialty is helping organizations better manage their financial affairs, and she’s noted for assisting nonprofits that are facing fiscal challenges.
