For many years, Martin County has been blessed with benefits provided by our Martin County Community Foundation. With the numerous funds, there are wonderful opportunities to donate to a preferred cause or set up a benefit program. Our ancestors, students, private groups, service clubs and more have benefited by financial assistance and information that is allowing Martin County to maintain cemeteries, organizations and for people to grow and prosper.

Each year we see our finest graduate and go out into the world with a benefit from the Loogootee Schools Schlorship Trust. We have outstanding programs, sports facilities and an auditorium at Loogootee. These facilities serve our students and the community. Each year the schlorship trust provides the studens with some starter support as they prepare to leave for higher education.

I am a teacher with the Loogootee Community School Corporation and for the past several years the foundation members have come in and spoke with our third grade classes and passed out their own personal dictionaries. I must tell you most of the students are so excited and can't wait to learn more about words and what they mean because they can use THEIR dictionary. Thanks to all of you who participate in this worthwhile cause.

The gratitude that I have for the Martin County Community Foundation is immeasurable. I believe that if the residents of this county were aware of the type of work being done on their behalf, that they too would hold the MCCF in high regard. The Martin County Community Foundation promotes charitable giving and supports nonprofits focusing on areas of education, youth development, workforce preparedness and more. The Community Foundation works to develop and implement initiatives that bring about positive change and find solutions to pressing issues such as education and emergency preparedness. The Martin County Community Foundation has helped and continues to help Martin County citizens in a myriad of areas. The Martin County Community Building that so many Martin County residents enjoy and use for a variety of reasons-- such as; wedding receptions, business meetings, philanthropic organizations, 4-H members to display their 4-H projects and numerous other entities. We owe a great deal of thanks to the Martin County Community Foundation, for without them, we would not have such a wonderful facility in which to host worthwhile community activities. A grant that the Community Foundation helped to secure is the main reason that we are privileged enough to have the Martin County Community Building.

The Martin County Community Foundation has provided so many opportunities for citizens in our community, with their small grants program. Many students are going on to get a higher education, small busineses are getting a boost to improve their services, and some to get started. I think it would be hard to estimate the tremendous impact the Foundation has had in Martin County, I would hate to go back to the days before the Foundation was formed, when outside help was nonexistant.

The Martin County Community Foundation has provided avenues for various non profit organizations to access grants needed for the betterment of the local communities in Martin County---examples: The Mustering Elm Park in Trinity Springs , the Shoals Fire Department and the Martin County Civil Defense. It also provides opportunities for one to contribute to a cause they care strongly about and /or start a fund for that cause leaving a legacy in said county long after the donor has gone. It also provides scholarship opportunities for the new high school grad and gives older adults the opportunity to further their education.

I read in the local paper all the good things The Martin County Committee Foundation has done for our county. I thinks it is great that our county being so small with very few people living here compared to other counties has had such great results from this Foundation. I am past President of The Martin County Chamber of Commerce, as well as the new Vice President and Board Member of The Chamber. I own two businesses and am involved in numerous projects. I went to the Foundations Annual Dinner and was really impressed by what they have accomplished for our community.
