Honoring Mrs. Parson’s Legacy
Since 1988, Board members have been appointed to The Mary Morton Parsons Foundation to perpetuate Mrs. Parsons’ legacy. Mrs. Parsons demonstrated that when we all work together, we can make our community a better place to live and work and that by doing so, we preserve the related traditions and history of our Commonwealth.
The Mary Morton Parsons Foundation typically awards between $5-7 million annually in grants to support capital projects, mostly on a challenge or matching basis. The Foundation has found that matching grants help organizations raise additional gifts they may not have otherwise received, thus leveraging the impact of the grant to benefit worthy causes.
