The Boissevain & Morton Foundation Inc. began in 1975 with the involvement of six community residents who were interested in not only seeing Boissevain grow and prosper, but also giving community minded citizens peace of mind when donating to a cause close to their hearts.
Today, the Boissevain & Morton Foundation manages over $5 million in donated funds sustained by individuals and families who care deeply about the future of our community. Our job is to make these funds grow so that they can flow back into the community to support a wide selection of charitable efforts.
Members of the Foundation disperse the interest collected into organizations and events which benefit the entire community. The Foundation awards grants once a year to non-profit organizations whose programs and services match the Foundation’s mission, values and grant making priorities. Our grants aim to improve the quality of life in our community for all. We support health, human services, arts and culture, environment, community development and service, education and training, and recreation.
A gift to the foundation has an important difference – it keeps giving year after year. Generations have chosen the Boissevain & Morton Foundation as their philanthropic partner.
It is always better to give than receive, but the glory of the Foundation is that when you give you will receive tax benefits. Tax deductible receipts are issued for all donations.
Boissevain and Morton Community Foundation’s
vision is an inclusive community
that continues to grow and prosper.
