About Morton 201 Foundation
Founded in 2011, the Morton 201 Foundation is a 501(c)3 whose mission is to provide inspiration and enrichment to the students of J. Sterling Morton High School District 201 through opportunities and resources supportive of their educational experiences.
The J. Sterling Morton High School District 201 serves over 8,500 students and is comprised of 5 schools: Morton East, Morton West, The Freshmen Center, The Alternative School and the Freshmen Academy.
We believe in the pursuit of higher education. In 2018 we established the Pay It Forward Scholarship Fund and awarded our first four $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors who attend an accredited college, university, technical, or trade school.
The award is based on outstanding academic performance, contributions to the school, extracurricular activities (or work experience) financial need, community service, and overall citizenship.
In 2020, we awarded ten $1,000 in scholarships. Due to several successful fundraisers as well as the generous and continued support of our donors and corporate sponsors, scholarships were increased to $2,000 in 2021.
To date, we have awarded 43 scholarships totaling $72,000. We want to keep that momentum going but we need your help.
