North Lawrence Community Schools have been blessed by the Community Foundation in multiples of ways since its inception. Our students have benefitted from program support; our teachers have benefitted from curriculum support. Because of employment issues due to job loss as well as general poverty, our students have been able to participate in programs they might otherwise have missed due to the generosity of the Foundation. Too, many students have been able to be assisted in post high school studies due to the scholarship program supported by the Foundation. The community and our schools are better due to the Foundation's fulfillment of mission.

When I was a senior in high school, I received the Lilly scholarship from the Martin County Community Foundation. I heard about the scholarship through teachers and school events. Since having received the scholarship, I've been nothing but pleased with the performance of the organization. If I ever have questions, they are more than willing to help me in any way they can. Without this opportunity, my college experience may have been very different so far. I am very appreciative of the Martin County Community Foundation, and they do an amazing job.

For over a decade, Martin County has been blessed with the opportunities provided by our Martin County Community Foundation.
Students, private groups, service clubs and more have benefited by financial assistance and information that allowed our area to grow
and prosper. An example is the
outstanding auditorium at Loogootee High School that not only serves our students, but the entire community. The foundation was instrumental in it's development.

With the combined hard work of local, regional and state peoples, the
future citizens of our area will reap the benefits. I can think of no greater legacy to leave them.

Martin County is one of the poorest counties in Indiana. Our Community Foundation has enabled students to attend college. These students might have become a statistic of unemployed if not given this opportunity. ?the foundation has pumped several million dollars into our economy. It is a win win situation for everyone it touches.

I received a scholarship through the Martin County Foundation the past year. Without this scholarship I would not have been able to attend the university I am presently enrolled in. Not only did receiving the scholarship relieve my parents, I was relieved because I knew I was going to get a great education without being in debt when I graduated. I am very thankful for this foundation.

The Lawrence County Community Foundation has had a HUGE positive impact on my life!! I received the 2007 Lilly Endowment Scholarship. This scholarship lessened the financial burden of college on my family significantly. The application process also taught me a lot. It really helped me evaluate what I had done during high school and focus on my future plans. I am currently in my fourth year of college at Purdue University where I am in the College of Pharmacy. I have two more years after this year. This program is a 2 year and then four year program. The last four years are considered professional school and thus the tuition is at a graduate rate. I am so thankful for the community foundation and the impact they have had on my life!!!

I have been a broad member for two years and have found the great areas that the foundation have been able to achieve for Martin County. Our education center is able to exist and educate the local community for jobs, fire departments have new building to better serve our community, libraries are better able to serve our two communties and the scholarships that our youth recieve to help them become educated to serve our community. Without the MCCF many of these areas would not benfit.

My review is of the Community Foundation Partnership which includes the counties of Lawrence and Martin in Indiana. The Partnership offers opportunities for individuals and/or groups to establish permanently endowed funds to benefit the not-for-profit group or agency of the donor's choice. The Partnership also provides a leadership role in the communities. I have been on the board of a community foundation in two different counties and have seen many good examples where the proceeds from permanent funds have provided the fuel to assist volunteers for organization to achieve their mission.
