“As a nonprofit organization, Morgan’s Wonderland relies on our community to support us in growing our mission of inclusion,” said Gordon Hartman, founder of Morgan’s Wonderland. “From the very beginning, anyone with a special need has been admitted free of charge, no questions asked. We can do things like free admission for individuals with special needs, low-cost items throughout the park, and programming because of the community’s support and funds raised at events like our annual gala.”

The closure of the nonprofit parks will have a dramatic economic impact – a loss estimated at more than $1.3 million, according to Morgan’s Wonderland.

“Your generosity will benefit our new Morgan’s Wonderland Inclusion Foundation (MWIF), which has been created to support the entire Morgan’s Wonderland “family” including Morgan’s Wonderland, Morgan’s Inspiration Island, Morgan’s Wonderland Sports, Morgan’s Wonderland Camp and the Multi-Assistance Center at Morgan’s Wonderland or The MAC,” Hartman said. “This means that by supporting this year’s virtual gala, you’ll be supporting all our efforts to build an inclusive community.”

KSAT Community operates in partnership with University Health System, Energy Transfer and Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union.
