About the Martin County Community Foundation
An affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation, the Martin County Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partner for donors. The MCCF was founded in 2004 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership – all for the benefit of Martin County.
The MCCF board advises the Martin County Community Foundation, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. The competitive grants program is held on an annual basis. Advisory board members live and work in Martin County, positioning them to strategically leverage resources, meet local needs and access opportunities. In addition to Peel, board members include: Gary Sproat (vice president), Susan Dunlow (secretary), Mary Katherine Saunders (treasurer), Loyall Corey, Deryl Fulmer, Simon Griffin, Leslie Johnson, Jerry McCrary and Nancy Winslow.

You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount.
