What is the Morton 201 foundation online auction?
As a result of COVID-19 and the mandates regarding social distancing and limits on group gatherings, the Morton 201 Foundation has had to switch all of its fundraising efforts to online.
This year we are hosting an online auction to raise money for our Pay It Forward Scholarship Fund.
In 2020, we awarded $10,000 in scholarships and we want to keep that momentum going. Our fundraising goal for this year is to raise $20,000 by Feb 1, 2021 but in order to do that, we need your support.
Our auction will begin on Sunday, November 29 at 12:01 am and end on Saturday, December 5 at 11:45 pm. Items will be distributed the following week. Just in time for Christmas!
Upon completion of the auction, items will be mailed, delivered, or need to be picked up. Please see auction listing for specific details.
Thanks to the efforts of our Fundraising Committee and the generous donations that we have received from Morton alumni, local businesses and community partners, the Morton 201 Foundation has collected over $8,300 in auction items including:
- 2-Night Stay in a Luxurious Downtown Penthouse with a Breathtaking View for Up to 5 People
