JEROME S. & GRACE H. MURRAY FOUNDATION
Jerome and Grace Murray began charitable giving as a young couple with limited resources. Giving was an
integral component of their lives from their early days and continues now even after their deaths. Native
Washingtonians, they were married in 1928 at the start of the Depression and slowly accumulated financial
wealth through real estate acquisitions. The Jerome S. & Grace H. Murray Foundation was established in 1980
and was endowed after Grace’s death in 1992. Jerome and Grace contributed to many charities, some
Catholic-related, during their lifetimes, the largest donation being $1,000,000 to Georgetown University to fund
construction of the Inter Cultural Building. Jerome and Grace had a developmentally disabled grandson and
from observation learned about the challenges facing persons with disabilities. They decided to focus the
scope of their foundation on the care, training and education of physically, mentally and emotionally disabled
people and those who care for them. Jerome and Grace envisioned a family foundation in which their
descendants would carry on their good works and support people with disabilities. The foundation has evolved
and empowers the lineal descendants of Jerome and Grace to actively continue the philanthropy of the
founders.
