Dear Friends of MCF,
As we start another fiscal year at the Morton Community Foundation, it is a real pleasure to write to you with good news.
The Morton Community Foundation continues to grow and impact Morton. Despite the economic challenges of the past few years, MCF has continued to award and facilitate grants that enhance the quality of life in Morton. This past fiscal year, the MCF presented grants and scholarships totaling over $44,000, and served as the conduit for donors, making additional gifts from pass-through funds and donor advised funds totaling over $402,500 - a total impact of $446,500 for charities and organizations on behalf of Morton area residents.
We readily acknowledge that we do not and cannot accomplish this alone. It is only through the generosity of friends like you that we have the ability to accomplish our mission.
The Foundation is an asset to our community…an asset that is local, connected and permanent. We are asking for your support of the MCF Operating Fund (the “Today and Tomorrow Fund”). Your gift to this fund helps us remain a strong and vital force for bettering the quality of life for Morton area residents. Although we have a variety of income sources for Operating Income, we hope to receive 7% of our needs from individuals like yourselves. In fact, we have set this fiscal year’s “Individual Donors” fundraising target at $10,000. Your gift in any amount is greatly needed and very much appreciated.
For your convenience, please click on “DONATE NOW” in the right hand panel to make a safe, secure donation. When you submit your donation, please indicate that you would like to donate to the “Today and Tomorrow Fund."
In closing, please know that your gift would be a real encouragement, and will help us continue the good work we’re doing on behalf of this wonderful community. Thank you in advance for your support for the MCF Operating Fund.
MCF Board President
