The Morgridge Family Foundation (MFF) invests in leaders and organizations that are reimagining solutions to some of today’s biggest challenges. The problems of the 21st century can’t be compartmentalized. Neither can MFF’s work. By bringing different sectors to the table, the foundation creates meaningful connections that foster innovation as a vehicle for systematic change. MFF offers vision, community, and resources to support a network of partners achieving their profound impact.Get To Know Us
At MFF, we approach giving differently. Rather than being bound to what was done before, we look at philanthropy as an active, collaborative opportunity to move great solutions forward.

He is an example of how MFF finds strong leaders and invests in their development.Learn About Our Partners
