As longstanding residents and business owners in the Southeastern MA area, the Morse family has always been strongly committed to giving back to the towns we serve, including Norton, Bridgewater, Easton, and Marion MA. In one sense, we feel that we are simply returning the favor for all the support that we have received over the years from our clients and partners. We also give back because we want to help preserve the nonprofit organizations that have done so much for the communities and neighbors we love. Morse, Of Course, hopes that by highlighting our relationship with just a few of these phenomenal organizations in our community, we will encourage others to volunteer, to participate, and to assist in any way they can.
Organizations We Support
For Our Residents of Easton
While this strictly volunteer organization does an incredible amount of good for the residents of Easton, MA, they would rather you not know about it. However, Morse decided to blow their cover, just a little, because we passionately believe in the vision of this nonprofit. The primary assistance that FORE offers is financial support during the holidays. They raise enough money and gifts-in-kind every year to distribute hundreds of gift cards to underprivileged kids who can then truly enjoy the holiday season. FORE has also established a scholarship that provides a set amount of money every year for four years to college students. If you would like to get involved with FORE, please contact Dan for more information.
Since 1991, there has been strong community support for the Children’s Museum in Easton, and Morse Insurance has been one of the most enthusiastic businesses behind the opening of this magical place. The Museum is truly a treasure to have in our community, especially given it is the only children’s museum between Boston and Providence. Our Morse team, along with our families, join over 50,000 visitors annually, who come to explore art, science, math, music, and literacy and play in the Old Fire Station, the enchanting Wild Place, and the outdoor learning center. Morse Insurance continues to be a proud charitable supporter of the Children’s Museum and to promote its tremendous goal of inspiring children and families to become lifelong learners.
Most, if not all, members of the Easton community have used the resources of the Old Colony YMCA. Whether you joined up for the kids’ swim lessons, the adult fitness classes, or the family educational and social opportunities, we are sure that you, and probably generations of your family, have benefitted from this amazing non-profit being right in our own backyard since 1887. The Morse Insurance team recognizes the importance of maintaining the Easton Branch YMCA and all its valuable programs so that it can continue to serve hundreds of thousands of individuals annually. That’s why we are proud to provide charitable support to this Easton landmark and ensure that the YMCA’s values of caring, honesty, responsibility, and respect continue to be taught for yet another century and beyond.
Located in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, SOWMA’s mission is to educate children impacted by homelessness by providing academic support and one-on-one mentoring so children can reach their full potential. Every April, Tim Morse leads a team of Morse Insurance professionals in supporting this incredible organization by joining hundreds of area runners and walkers for the annual Outrun Homelessness 5K Run or 2.6 Mile Walk. Morse, Of Course, will be there this year as well on Saturday, April 29th at DCR Borderland State Park, Easton MA. We would love to see you there and hope you will help SOWMA provide school supplies, tutoring and mentoring to children in our very own communities impacted by homelessness.
At Morse, we have always emphasized the importance of additional driver training for new and experienced drivers, alike. We believe that every one of us can benefit from courses that will give us more confidence behind the wheel and more tools for driving safely on today’s busy roads. That’s why we are such strong advocates for In Control, a non-profit organization that offers the nation’s first state certified crash preventing training to drivers of all ages. We have developed a wonderful partnership with the In Control foundation, which has trained over 30,000 students, specifically preparing them to handle emergency vehicle situations. Morse proudly offers monetary support to the foundation in order to help advance a mutual mission of reducing automobile crashes, particularly among teenage drivers. In addition, the relationship we have built with In Control provides sensational benefits to Morse insurance clients; you receive a $40 discount on In Control classes and, when you graduate from your course, you may qualify for additional discounts on your car insurance.
