Chairperson Allison Braun says “I always look forward to meeting with the applicant organizations in October as this helps to build relationships and puts a face to a name.  I thoroughly enjoy talking to these organizations and learning of all the good projects that are out there targeting the needs of the community. Granting is truly my most favorite time of year.  It is very satisfying knowing the Foundation can make a huge difference particularly during this time of uncertainty.” 

“The Foundation is here to support the good work in the community.  By investing with the MAF, no matter if your donation is small or large, you are touching the lives of the current residents, residents that are yet to come to Morden, and those that haven’t even been born yet.”  says Lynda Lambert, Endow MB Community Foundations Coordinator, South Central Region. “Your donation today is invested, and with interest earned, will grant out every year, year after year, after year, forever.  It is hard to fathom but that is the Foundation’s plan for longevity and sustainability of the community.”
