In 1999, Alice and Mort Mortenson created the Mortenson Family Foundation as an expression of gratitude – for the privilege of living and working in a vital and vibrant community, and for the great joy our family brings to our lives. For Alice and Mort Mortenson, service is the hallmark of their love for mankind. The two consistently share their beliefs about service and sharing with their children and grandchildren. The Foundation offers our family an opportunity to work together to make a positive, lasting difference in our communities for generations to come. Each family member plays a pivotal role in our work, contributing skills and experiences to benefit our communities.
