The Martin Guitar Charitable Foundation has announced 72 grants totaling $471,000 to nonprofits in the Lehigh Valley region and around the country.
The foundation was established by Christian Frederick Martin IV and the late Diane S. Martin in 1996. Since 1998, Martin Guitar Company has contributed to the foundation to support foundation programs. Over 25 years of giving, the foundation has made 890 grants totaling $4.5 million.
The Martin Guitar community continues to mourn the death of Vice President Diane S. Martin in January, 2022.
Almost 150 companies and individuals honored Diane with gifts to the foundation as the foundation supports causes and organizations that were dear to Diane’s heart in education, health care, and sustainability.
