Full job description

The Community Foundation of Morgan County (CFMC) was established when two smaller county community foundations were merged in 2000. The main office for many years was in Mooresville, Indiana, housed in the Academy Building. CFMC purchased an office building on the courthouse square in Martinsville thanks to the generosity of the Fenneman Family. In January 2011, CFMC moved its main office to Martinsville. CFMC has assets of nearly $9M and annually awards over $120,000 in scholarships as well as over $40,000 in Impact grants.

The assets under management for CFMC are approximately $10 million.
