Morgan Franklin Fellowship Foundation (MFF) founder Peter Morgan has a deep desire to promote civic virtue. Illustrated through his passion to teach people about money and how it works, Peter is driven to show how this knowledge can forever change the trajectory of someone’s life. In the latest installment of our “Coffee and Conversation” series, Peter shares the story behind creating his legacy – Morgan Franklin Fellowship (MFF).
Peter’s path to personal and professional success began with his very first job as a caddy at a golf course in his native state of New Jersey when he was a young boy. Peter explains how this job led to his desire to prove himself. As a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, Peter’s education and military service set the stage for a successful career as an investor with a passion for real estate.
A self-proclaimed “teacher to all,” Peter delights in seeing those around him progress in life by learning new skills and trying new things. Listen in as Peter explains how Morgan Franklin Fellowship has grown from teaching his own children about the power of money to how he was inspired to create his foundation based on the wisdom of one our country’s founding fathers and noted inventor, Benjamin Franklin.
We are grateful to Peter for spending this enlightening hour with us, sharing his thoughtful insight and encouraging words. While our team always enjoys listening when Peter shares the wonderful stories which have inspired him, we are particularly fond of “One Starfish Inspires the Journey” – we hope you will be too!
