    Mission Statement


    The Friends of Morton Foundation supports the mission, programs, and activities of Morton Community College District #527. The Foundation offers such support by being a source of additional revenue through attending to small capital needs for resources under $25,000 for the College. The Foundation also raises funds on its behalf and distributes those funds non-discriminatory to the College, College programs and College students to help improve and enhance the quality of the educational experience. The Friends of Morton Foundation prides itself in helping support the highest serving Latino and Hispanic public community college east of the Mississippi.
