About Us

The MORRIS Foundation adopted a proactive grant-making style of funding. Each spring the Foundation identifies potential grantees that focus on improving the lives of youth in western Canada, aged 12-25, living with or at risk of, mental illness and addiction.  These selected grantees are invited to submit an application for funding.

 

The Foundation focuses on organizations that align with the Foundation's Vision and Mission and those that address the Foundation's Values and Areas of Impact and align with the Foundation's.
