For almost fifty years, under the Older Americans Act Title II Nutrition Program, the Morton County Council on Aging has provided older adults in Morton and Oliver counties with the nutrition resources they need to remain where they want to be – healthy and in their own home. This vital nutrition program has been extraordinarily successful in specifically targeting the needs of our rural communities across our service area. It remains the most cost-effective way to support a dignified, healthy retirement for the senior citizens we serve.
Morton County Council on Aging relies on regular donations to support services. This allows our seniors who are financially unable to contribute to still receive the care they need. No set fees are established and seniors are asked to donate what they can to offset costs.
We have been fortunate to receive partial funding and support for services from Morton County, the State of North Dakota, federal government agencies, area organizations, Missouri Slope Areawide United Way and private individual gifts.
We offer electronic giving with WeShare and with ACH as a way to automate your donation.

Nutrition Services include our congregate meals and our home delivered meal program. These meals are provided at a suggested contribution but no one will be denied these services if they are unable to contribute. Your donation will make it possible for us to continue to provide these services to those who are not financially able to contribute to our program.
The Memorial Fund offers a way to honor and memorialize your loved ones that have passed away. These funds are administered by the Mandan Golden Age Club Board of Directors. Dividends and interest earned by this fund will be used to provide services to seniors. Contributions to this fund can also be made through bequests from estates. Contributions of $100 or more will be recognized with an engraved plaque displayed at the senior center. Contributions of under $100 will be recognized with the name of their loved one in the Book of Honor.
The building fund is used to help with the cost of maintaining the Senior Center.
