About

Our Mission

To acquire, manage, and distribute funds to enhance the lives of youth in the Martin County area.

The Martin County Youth Foundation (MCYF) is a permanent community endowment dedicated exclusively to serving the needs of area youth. Formerly known as the Fairmont Area Youth Foundation, MCYF was established in 2000 by a group of active citizens concerned about the area’s future.

The name was changed to Martin County Youth Foundation in 2005 to better reflect the area served. Today, MCYF exclusively supports youth-oriented programs of nonprofit organizations, churches, schools and units of government.

Comprised of youth and adults alike, MCYF’s advisory board is responsible for reinvesting the endowment’s earnings into the community. Grants are awarded twice per year. MCYF offers flexible giving options that allow individual and corporate donors to support area youth now and far into the future.
