Other Community

Burton D. Morgan Foundation periodically makes proactive grants to community organizations whose important work falls outside our mission-related grant focus. These grants are typically made once a year and are determined on a proactive basis by the Foundation's Trustees. We do not accept applications for our proactive community grantmaking and typically select a different group of recipient organizations each year.
