Morrison has a single goal: To help kids be kids and families stay together.
Today, we provide mental health and substance-use recovery services for over 8,200 youth and families throughout Oregon, filling an essential role in our community. We serve individuals of every background and recognize, respect, and celebrate our uniqueness and that which unites us.
Your gift to Morrison, through your will or living trust, directly supports the essential services we provide to Oregon families.
We can’t do this crucial work alone. After providing for your loved ones, please consider including the Morrison Foundation in your estate plans.
Your legacy will have a lasting impact on our community. Make a difference. Support the youth of tomorrow by planning today.

You may also include a bequest in support of Morrison Foundation when preparing your will or by adding a codicil to your present will. Bequests may be of cash, securities, real estate or other property. Bequests of all sizes are welcome, whether they are outright, contingent, or residual. A bequest is:
Flexible: You can direct your support to any program or the Morrison Foundation.
Revocable: A bequest can always be modified if your interests or circumstances change
