Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) for the 2024 Winter/Spring Social Equity in St. Cloud grant cycle are due by January 12, 2024. Other grants are by invitation only.
Since 2003, the Foundation has donated over $42 million in grants to a wide range of charitable organizations.
Lee and Vicki Morgan established the Morgan Family Foundation in 2003 as a vehicle for family philanthropy.
The Foundation awards grants for charitable purposes, primarily in Yellow Springs, Ohio and St. Cloud, Minnesota. Foundation giving totaled over $2 million in 2022.
The Morgan Family Foundation seeks a just society in which all individuals have ample opportunities to thrive and where outcomes are not determined by one’s heritage, physical characteristics, beliefs, residence, or inclusion in any particular group.
Community leaders and residents will need to rely on credible data to advance social equity. With this understanding, communities are better equipped to identify and evaluate strategies, policies, and programs to address disparities.
With support from the Morgan Family Foundation, Minnesota Compass, a project of Wilder Research, developed a dashboard report to detail information about inequities and disparities in the St. Cloud area. Social equity is central to the purpose of the Morgan Family Foundation.
Advancing social equity and reducing disparities in the Greater St. Cloud, Minnesota region requires a common understanding among organizations, community leaders, and residents of the disparities that exist. This dashboard offers an in-depth look at key measures that provide insight into the disparities and inequities that exist in the Greater St. Cloud region.
The Morgan Family Foundation has transitioned most of its grantmaking to our “Vision 2020” themes: mitigating global warming in Minnesota; advancing social equity in St. Cloud, MN; and addressing end of life issues, primarily in central MN. The largest grants paid in 2022 in each of these themes supported the Farmers Union Foundation for empowering farmer leadership on climate and working lands; Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota for Eastside, Roosevelt and Southside Boys & Girls Clubs Programming for Youth; and Light the Legacy for organizational capacity building.
