Donations to unrestricted funds allow the community foundation’s board of directors
the most flexibility in fulfilling the ever changing needs of the community. Grants from unrestricted funds can be made to any 501(c) organization for their charitable purposes in the Morton area.
The Dennis A. Ewald Fund for Morton may be used without restriction by the Foundation Board to meet community needs. Donations of any size to any of this fund will help build the future capacity of the Foundation to meet future needs.
The Morton Community Foundation Board of Trustees, in July 2008, established this fund to honor Dennis A. Ewald for his vision, leadership, guidance and service to the Foundation as its president from the Foundation's inception in 2000, continuing for six years.
The purpose of this fund matches exactly the purpose of the Morton Impact Fund. Your gift to either fund will address a broad range of local needs—including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made. We evaluate all aspects of community well-being: arts and culture, economic development, education, environment, health and human services, parks & recreation, and more. The flexibility of your unrestricted gift enables the Morton Community Foundation to respond to the community’s most pressing needs, today and for generations to come.
