About The Charlotte Martin Foundation

The Charlotte Martin foundation, based in Seattle, was established in 1987.   Since its inception, over $19 million has been awarded,  primarily in the Pacific Northwest, in four program areas: Youth-focused athleticscultureeducation and wildlife and habitat preservation. A five-member Board governs the Foundation. The Board is proactive, doing the substantive work of the granting process.  Members function as program officers, researching and developing projects, reviewing proposals and making decisions.  The foundation does not currently have a permanently staffed office.   Harris Bank is Trustee of the funds and Foundation Source provides administrative support for grantmaking.
