My Cart


The LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation (501c3) was founded in 2007 by Michael’s parents, Dan and Maureen Murphy, along with Michael’s brother, John. Michael was an avid reader who felt that education was key. In fact, his favorite saying was “Education will set you free”.

The Foundation’s Board began with Family, but now seats nine members consisting of Dan, Maureen, and John Murphy, as well as other close family and friends committed to keeping Michael’s life, service, sacrifice and legacy alive.

The Foundation is funded through kind donations and proceeds from The Murph Challenge, a Forged® annual fundraiser.
