Helping support educators, students and academic administrators
Jack Murdock placed special emphasis on the importance and value of education as a means of inspiring innovation, strengthening communities and helping uplift individuals and families. The Murdock Trust seeks opportunities to invest in educational programs in both the traditional classroom setting, including K-12 and private and public colleges and universities, and the nontraditional setting such as community engagement programs, adult programs, arts appreciation efforts and scientific demonstrations.
