The Gorman Foundation’s mission is “to improve the quality of life for present and future generations and serves as the living legacy of Own T. Gorman, Catherine Cummings Gorman and Alice M. Gorman.”

With its focus on improving the quality of life in Madison County, the Gorman Foundation has given generous grants to numerous local not-for-profit organizations and established in Oneida the Mary Rose Clinic and the soon-to-be-opened Gorman Foundation Community Center in the Northside Shopping Center.
