The Yellow Springs Community Children’s Center has a long tradition of caring for our youngest residents, emphasizing the value of play and outdoor time while also exposing children to technological tools for learning. A 2009 grant of $15,000 assisted with a campaign to address immediate capital improvements, including fence replacement, interior paint and new carpeting.

A Private Family Foundation for Charitable Giving

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 2021.

Greater St. Cloud Equity Dashboard


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.

DONATING FOR POSITIVE CHANGE

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 in central MN.  The largest grants paid in 2021 in each of these themes supported Sahan Journal for a climate change reporter, United Way of Central MN for Black Leaders for Student Success, and Light the Legacy for organizational capacity building.
