M.j. Murdock Chartiable Trust
The Trust seeks to enrich the quality of life in the Pacific Northwest by providing grants and enrichment programs to non-profit organizations that seek to strengthen the region's educational, spiritual, and cultural base in creative and sustainable ways. Created by the co-founder of Tektronix, the Trust focuses its grantmaking on the following areas: arts and culture, health and human services, education, and research. Arts grants support performance and visual arts projects that enrich the cultural environment of the region. Preference is given to those with educational outreach efforts. Health and human services grants seek to improve the quality of life throughout the region. Preventive efforts that address physical, spiritual, social, and psychological needs, especially those focused on youth are preferred. Education grants support educational projects offered in both formal and informal settings. Special interest is given to requests from private higher educational institutions. Research grants are limited to specific organizations and projects, but the Trust does consider other science based initiatives. The Trust makes three types of grants: capital, program, and equipment. Additional information can be found on the Web site. Letters of inquiry are accepted from organizations in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
