The Felix E. Martin Jr. Foundation seeks to enrich the lives of the citizens of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky by providing support to qualified organizations to meet educational, civic and cultural needs of the County – both today and for generations to come.
The Foundation was established in 2008 by a trust created by Felix E. Martin Jr. (1927-2007), a native and long-time resident of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, and is administered by The Community Foundation of Louisville.
Since that time, The Felix E. Martin Jr. Foundation has focused its charitable work on investments in quality of life in Muhlenberg County, a county of over 31,000 people. While all grants which benefit the education, civic and cultural needs of the County are considered, the Foundation gives priority to grant projects which support economic and community development and youth services in Muhlenberg County.
Since the Foundation’s first grants were awarded in 2008, the Foundation has awarded over $23 million dollars to support projects in Muhlenberg County.
