ASP us! You read that right, ASP us about our Annual Support Partners (ASP) campaign. During 2014 the Board of Trustees and staff of the Morton Community Foundation launched this campaign so we can keep doing the “good stuff”.
Since the MCF was established in 2000 about $1.7 million has moved through the Foundation and into our community through grants, donor advised fund grants and as a place for donors to give to major projects in the community such as the Idlewood Arts Pavilion, the Veteran’s Memorial and the Downtown Plaza. And, we have $3.8 million in endowed funds that will continue to support charitable purposes in our community for generations to come.
We’ve been busy! As we grow, plan for the future and meet the needs of our donors we want to make sure the MCF remains sustainable from an operations perspective. It takes time and money to accomplish all the “good stuff” and we are committed to continuing our mission.
We have had the opportunity to meet with donors this year and many people have joined us by becoming an Annual Support Partner. Their commitment helps us achieve our goal of sustainability. These donors have committed to giving financially to the MCF operations costs on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis for at least the next three years.
