Developing social impact leadership while driving radical innovation for nonprofit organizations

The Morgridge Acceleration Program (MAP) is made up of an ecosystem of leaders dedicated to tackling the greatest problems of our time. To achieve this goal, MAP invests in professionals from a variety of backgrounds and experience levels united by a common drive to accelerate social impact.

MAP was founded through the visionary leadership of John and Carrie Morgridge in 2018. After spending decades driving impact in the social sector, and granting over $130mm through the Morgridge Family Foundation (MFF), their entrepreneurial approach to philanthropy proved that innovation doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It takes a network grounded in diverse perspectives, radical collaboration, and daring imagination to solve the social problems we face. It is with this integrity that all MAP programs are built and all participants are selected.

While MAP is constantly evolving to meet the needs of social sector leadership, three flagship initiatives currently complete its ecosystem.
