Due to the unprecedented global Coronavirus crisis, the Martin County Community Foundation has activated an Emergency Relief Fund. The Community Foundation will be able to address the community's most pressing needs by granting to trusted nonprofit partners throughout Martin County who may become overwhelmed by requests for assistance. This is also an opportunity for residents and businesses to donate to the Community Foundation to support nonprofits helping our most vulnerable populations.
With a frontline understanding of the ramifications of the healthcare crisis and the impact upon people in our community, previously vetted nonprofit partners may submit requests for funding consideration. Rather than the usual grantmaking procedure, the CF will utilize a "Rapid Response" process for distributions from the Emergency Relief Fund.
Staff are working remotely as mandated by the Governor's Executive Order; however, non-profit partners may reach out to CEO Hope Flores at firstname.lastname@example.org or Finance/Grants Officer Lisa Starr at email@example.com. Staff will return messages as quickly as possible. Please continue to contact Development Director Curt Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org about giving to other funds or the ongoing GIFT VII matching campaign.
Anyone wishing to make tax-deductible gifts to the Fund should mail checks payable to MCCF Emergency Relief Fund c/o Martin County Community Foundation, P.O. Box 28, Loogootee, IN 47553.
