"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.


Do you know an outstanding volunteer? Someone who is dedicated to making the City of Morden a better place to live? A passionate community leader? The Morden Area Foundation is now accepting nominations for the Citizen of Distinction Award. Successful applications require two nominators, and a demonstrated history of community service.
Past winners include Claire Agnew (2019), Sue Nelson (2018), Dr. Bob Menzies (2017) and Ron Blum (2016). Visit our Citizen of Distinction page for more information, past winners and a nomination form.
