The Morgridge Family Foundation makes investments that transform communities through education, conservation, the arts and health and wellness. While The Morgridge Family Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant proposals, ideas regarding innovative projects can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Foundation funds innovative projects that elevate the teaching profession, while directly impacting the students' engagement and achievement in the classroom. We believe in harnessing technologic, and non-tech, tools to personalized instruction and learning experiences for the student in a formal and informal education setting.
The Foundation invests in conservation projects that take a unique approach to protecting our environment. Conservation efforts at the Foundation typically will overlap with other funding priority areas. When we consider investing in a conservation project, we look at the secondary gains of the project. For example, is the project one that creates a workforce pipeline into conservation centric jobs or careers?
The Foundation has a history of investing in projects that scale access to the arts for children and families who typically would not have access to the Arts. Funding in this category tends to serve multiple funding priority areas like Education.
The Foundation is committed to projects that create choice for a community's response to health and wellbeing. Projects funded in this priority, tend to focus on solutions that are implemented far "upstream" of the necessity for clinical care or treatment for an illness or medical condition.
