Founded in 1997 Giving Back to Martin

The Martin Community Foundation was established in 1997 by Fred and Luella Cozad alongside a dedicated group of people with a desire to create a sustainable asset for the community of Martin, SD. Over $173,000 has been donated to the fund allowing for $73,000 in grants to be given for community projects and programs making Martin a better place.


Giving grants back to community programs is one of the primary reasons the Martin Community Foundation was created. As the fund grows, so will the amount available to give back to nonprofit projects and programs each year. To apply for grant funding for your project or community program, please contact our board of directors.
