  • Family philanthropy benefits Yellow Springs

The Morgan Family Foundation, which has given away millions of dollars to local groups since 2003, was founded by Lee and Vicki Morgan. At each family reunion the Morgan Family Foundation offers each family member the opportunity to give $500 to an organization of their choice. (Submitted Photo)
