Our History  

CFMC Financial Services Officer, Tonya Todd, welcomes guests to the 2010 Morgan County Fair.

  The Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc. was founded on January 5, 2000, with the partnership of the Mooresville Community Foundation and the Morgan County Community Foundation.  

   Each year the Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc. distributes thousands of dollars in grants and scholarships to local nonprofit organizations and to students. We also collaborate with other nonprofit organizations in the community on major initiatives which can improve our community.  

   In 2001, the Kendrick Foundation, Inc. joined the Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc. as a supporting organization.  The sale of the local Kendrick Hospital allowed the formation of the Kendrick Foundation, Inc., which focuses on providing health-related grants and scholarships in Morgan County. On July 1, 2007, the Kendrick Foundation became a private foundation. However, the Kendrick Foundation still shares a staff and office with the Community Foundation. For more information on the Kendrick Foundation, Inc., please visit the Kendrick Foundation, Inc. page.  

   In late 2010 during our 10th anniversary year, a generous couple provided a donation which made it possible for the CFMC to purchase its own building on the square in downtown Martinsville. In January of 2011, the Community Foundation of Morgan County opened its new main office at 56 North Main Street, Martinsville. The foundation now maintains both offices including its original location in the Academy Building at 250 North Monroe Street, Mooresville. Both offices are open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
