The Marshall Community Foundation successfully meets the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations administered by the Council on Foundations in Washington D.C. National Standards represents the highest measure of accountability and transparency in philanthropy.

The Marshall Community Foundation (MCF) is a non-profit (501(c)(3)) dedicated to improving the quality of life in Marshall, the surrounding area, and Calhoun County.  The Foundation is unique.  It is a permanent, yet flexible, collection of endowment funds, established by people from all walks of life who want to give back.  The principal of these funds remains intact forever.  However, a percentage of the interest and earnings generated annually is invested back into the community.  This is done in the form of GRANTS that tackle today's needs & tomorrow's challenges.

A charitable vehicle which accepts, invests, and distributes resources according to donors' intentions for the benefit of the community.

A convener of members, resources, and ideas of the community in order to confer and take effective action on demanding local issues.

A grantmaker for Marshall and Calhoun County nonprofits in the areas of arts, community development, education and scholarship assistance, and health and human services... truly a community of donors.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Marshall Community Foundation is to
help make the Marshall area an even better place to live, work
and raise a family.

We do this by attracting permanently endowed funds
from a wide range of donors, serving as a conduit for special projects, distribution of grants
in support of innovative
programs, while always
being mindful to carry
out the intention
of the donors.
