M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust

The Murdock Trust is excited to share that Rudy Carrasco, a 29-year veteran of nonprofit and community service, will join our team as our newest Program Director! A Stanford University graduate, Rudy brings extensive experience working in education, economic and leadership development through his professional and volunteer roles.

“We are excited to have Rudy bring his wealth of experiences and insights as we seek to serve the nonprofit community across the Pacific Northwest,” said Steve Moore, Executive Director, M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust. “We know that his hands on leadership and experience with such a wide variety of projects – from job creation and career training to business development to youth education – serving diverse populations will be an asset for our constituents and he will bring a valuable perspective to our work.”

A national leader in community development, Rudy has excelled in collaboration, innovative gatherings and creative community engagement. A dedicated community servant, Rudy has volunteered with several organizations, including serving on the World Vision US board and the Christian Community Development Association board, outside of his primary occupation.

A gifted author with more than 100 published articles to his credit and frequent keynote speaker, Rudy has a unique talent for connecting and engaging stakeholders in productive conversations and helping communicate the most effective and efficient ways to addresses serious challenges. Rudy and his wife will return to the west coast after spending the last several years in Michigan where he has served as the U.S. Facilitator for Partners Worldwide. He will begin his new role after wrapping up his transition at Partners.

Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Rudy Carrasco!
