  Former residents Carrie and John Morgridge have their names on a lot of buildings, including the Colorado Mountain College campus in Aspen and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The former Aspen residents live on the Front Range now and are prolific philanthropists. Mrs. Morgridge recently penned the book “Every Gift Matters: How Your Passion Can Change the World.”

Morgridge was in the Roaring Fork Valley earlier this month and spoke with Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher about whether it’s easier to say all donations are helpful when it’s possible to give millions of dollars.
