Martin Fund

The Martin Foundation

The Martin Foundation was established, as an independent foundation, in 1968 by two proud Hamilton residents, D’Arcy Argue Counsell Martin, and his brother, Hubert Anthony Martin. Both men practiced law in Hamilton, and served the community as volunteers in numerous charitable and community endeavours. They founded The Martin Foundation in order that the community would continue to receive financial support on a yearly basis when they were no longer actively involved. In 2011, The Martin Foundation Fund was established as the successor directors decided to merge The Martin Foundation with the Hamilton Community Foundation to ensure that this legacy of philanthropy would remain in this community and be strengthened through this relationship.
