About Morton Community Foundation
The Morton Community Foundation was formed as a Community Trust or Savings Account created by Morton people for the benefit of generations to come. Donations to the Morton Community Foundation offer financial benefits and tax incentives. When donors give to a fund, their principal gift will never be spent. Instead, it is invested... and the proceeds from the investments are used to benefit their favorite organizations or fields of interest.
Although the Morton Community Foundation seeks to support and work with other local organizations, the Foundation is an independent charity that follows the ethical principals and best practices of the Council on Foundations, a national organization that supports grantmakers in various aspects of foundation management.
The Mission of the Morton Community Foundation is to improve the quality of life for Morton area residents, now and for generations to come.
