"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has." - Anthropologist Margaret Mead

This conviction led a small group of community leaders to establish the Morden Area Foundation in 1993, for they recognized that one of the best ways to enrich a community was through the creation of a permanent endowment fund.
