Vision For The Future

Fairmont Area Foundation was started in 1993 by visionary community members along with a matching grant from the Mickelson Foundation. Gifts from individuals, families, businesses, and estates have helped the fund grow to over $2,000,000 and has generated earnings of over $985,000. These earnings have been distributed back to Martin County communities through grants.

In January of 2013 the Fairmont Area Foundation Board of Directors voted to change the name to Martin County Area Foundation to better identify with the entire county and to better connect with all the communities within Martin County.

Please take a moment to review the list of projects that have received grants since 1994. We believe that you will agree these meaningful projects have made this area a better place to live.

If you have invested in the past, we thank you for your generosity and invite you to consider another gift to the Foundation, perhaps to a higher donor category. If you are a new investor, we thank you for any gift, but encourage you to consider which of the various donor categories best fits your current situation. Please join the other outstanding citizens as together we all strengthen our roots and our quality of life in Martin County. We appreciate your support, it benefits us all.
