Finish-A Personal Journey in Philanthropy

This is the personal account of Steve Moore’s journey in philanthropy that began at the Murdock Charitable Trust.

The M.J  Murdock Charitable Trust was established 47 years ago with an aim to build partnerships for a common benefit. They foster the growth of Pacific Northwest NGOs and their target areas of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington through grantmaking, enrichment programs, convenient regional strength, education, social, spiritual, and culture-based initiatives that are innovative and sustainable. Over 3000 organizations in the region have benefited from the trust so far.

Steve Moore, Executive Director of the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust, has been with the organization for 16 years and says that over the years, the trust has worked to assist organizations in seeking to better accomplish their goal and building their own capacity to do so.

Steve Moore began his journey in the education sector, which is not recognized for its flexibility and innovation, and asserts that his own experience with education has made him an inventive instructor. Because the Murdock Trust’s principles fit with his, he says he saw the opportunity because of the significant influence at a critical point in people’s lives to mold, form, and guide them, which encouraged him to join the organization.

Murdock Trust assists businesses with grant writing, and a comprehensive resource sheet titled “Writing Great Grants” is available on the website. It simply tells you that this is what foundations look for when they get a grant application.

The trust has helped many firms raise a lot of money over the years, and it all starts with good stewardship, and stewardship and generosity go hand in hand. You can be more giving if you’re a good steward. These are some of the twin concepts that the corporation operates on while making investments, and they strive to discover long-term profits rather than immediate gains.

Steve adds that the Murdock Trust strives to be a good charitable steward as a firm. Being charitable entails being able to disperse resources through good donations. In this philanthropic journey, he claims that there is a philanthropic ecosystem in which foundations give while others receive.

He admits that his move to philanthropy was seamless since he had mentors who walked alongside him. Steve Moore states that as he nears the end of his philanthropic journey, he will spend his next season supporting, increasing, and assisting individuals as they want to be charitable and contribute where appropriate.

We,The Nehemiah Project wish Steve Moore all the best as he finishes his journey in philanthropy.
