Become a Friend of the Foundation

Martinsville Area Community Foundation brings good people and good causes together. We are indebted to the many people who have helped and continue to help build a strong and vibrant foundation to serve our unique and wonderful community. Our Friends of the Foundation program is a great way to get involved with the Foundation. The Friends program honors donors who provide annual support of $500 or more to be split between our Martinsville Area Unrestricted Fund and our Administrative Fund. This enables us to address a wide variety of important local needs and provides us with the support necessary to carry out our daily work in the community. Friends are recognized in our annual report, website, and other publications as well as at events.

Please consider making an investment in our continuing work by becoming a "Friend of the Foundation."
