“We are excited to offer this fun event to the people of Morrisville. We all know the importance of supporting our non-profits and their work. We’re proud to give grants that enrich the lives of our families and citizens, and we hope that everyone will buy a ticket or make a donation to our fund so we can continue to give more and larger grants to deserving local non-profits,” Liz Johnson, Events Committee Chair said.

The Morrisville Community Fund is a fund of the North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF). The fund was started in 2011 and last year made its first grants.
