Unrestricted Funds

Your gift can address ever-changing community 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, neighborhood revitalization, and more. The flexibility of your unrestricted gift enables the Morton Community Foundation to respond to the community’s most pressing needs, today and tomorrow.
