Pay It Forward Awards

Pay It Forward Awards

In 2021, the Morton 201 Foundation created the Pay It Forward Awards to recognize individuals, organizations and businesses who have supported and contributed to the promotion and advancement of the Foundation's mission and efforts.

Recipients of this award have repeatedly gone above and beyond to advocate, promote, donate, raise funds and increase awareness about the Foundation on an ongoing basis.

Awards are given annually in three categories:

  • Morton Family Member - student, alumni, faculty or staff member
  • Individual - any individual not directly associated with Morton District 201
  • Business or organization
