When Dr. Carl Morrison founded Morrison Child and Family Services in 1947, he envisioned ground-breaking care for Portland’s most vulnerable children. His goal was based on a commitment to the highest professional standards, partnership with the entire community and a deep personal conviction that every child should have the chance to thrive.

Today, we collaborate with every major regional organization and agency concerned with the well-being of children. Most of all, we care for each and every vulnerable child who comes to us in search of a positive new direction. The last 70 years have proven that Dr. Morrison’s legacy has an important place in our community and that Morrison’s services will be needed for many decades to come. Your planned gift to Morrison will enable you to build your own legacy of hope for our community’s children.

Name Morrison in your will, donate real estate, or make Morrison the beneficiary of a gift annuity to join the Carl Morrison Legacy Society and continue your support of Morrison into the future.

“Supported by statistically driven program evaluation techniques, Morrison’s services and results are acclaimed by both public and private professional organizations. We are proud long-term supporters of Morrison’s efforts and have included the organization in our estate planning.” George Alexander, Planned Giving Donor
