Grant Workshop Web Header.jpg

If you are a non-profit charity, school, or governing body that impacts Morton area residents, or if you are involved with one of these, we are asking you to consider submitting a grant request for our 2018 grant cycle. The Grant Cycle opens on Friday, February 16, 2018.  The deadline for completed grant applications is 5:00pm, Friday, March 9, 2018. 

Our purpose is to assist in projects that fulfill our mission.  Due to the large number of grant requests we receive each year, and the limited dollars available to support those requests, we are offering a Grant Writers’ Workshop.  This workshop will last approximately 1 hour.  We will provide information that will help your organization understand the criteria with which proposals will be prioritized for funding.  We highly encourage attendance by those planning to submit proposals so that the grant writer will have the information needed to give their request the highest likelihood of funding. 

The workshop will be held... Wednesday, February 7, 2018, 4:00PM - at the Morton Community Foundation, 105 E. Jefferson Street.  REGISTER FOR THE WORKSHOP BELOW, or call 291-0434.


HAPPY 2018!

Every Gift Counts + Every Dream Matters

From the staff at the Morton Community Foundation, we thank you for your support and wish you a very Happy New Year!
