The Foundation at a Glance

In 2001, John and Mari Ann Martin established the Martin Family Foundation in an effort to give back to the communities in which they and their family live. A private foundation dedicated to the teachings and love of Jesus Christ, the foundation supports 501c(3) organizations whose efforts focus on faith-based education, services to the poor and at-risk, preservation of the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death and promotion of the Catholic faith.

“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”

Hebrews 13:16

“In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.”

St. Teresa of Calcutta

“As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.”

St. John Paul II
