M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust

How does a soft spoken, humble young man from Southeast Portland go on to revolutionize the world of technology?

Why did the head of a Fortune 500 company introduce a people-focused office culture with policies like flex time and open access to leadership . . . in the 1950s and 60s?

How did a small electronics repair shop lead to the largest employer in the state of Oregon . . . and more than $1 billion in investment in nonprofits serving the Pacific Northwest?

Jack Murdock lived a fascinating life as a student, an inventor, an innovator, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a veteran and a citizen of his community, and yet his story is rarely told and not widely known. In a new short-form documentary by the team at Windrider, we get a glimpse into the mind, life and work of one of the most influential individuals in the history of the Pacific Northwest.

We would love for you to join us for the world premiere of The Jack Murdock Story, June 17, 12:00-12:30 PM Pacific. Register at the link below, and we will follow up shortly with instructions to join the virtual watch party (the first 50 registrants will receive a complimentary goodie bag from the Trust).
