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.

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.
