Community Foundation of Grundy County



The Morris Community Foundation seeks to provide vision for Morris and the surrounding area in order to preserve and enhance our quality of life. The Foundation will do this by providing leadership to identify important needs, concerns, and opportunities; by using our grantmaking to respond to those needs and effect change; by partnering with local not-for-profit organizations to strengthen their abilities to serve our citizens; and by partnering with donors to receive and manage funds that will support the community for generations to come.
