Martin North Giving

Supporting our community is an integral part of our culture at Martin North. We’re honored to carry on a tradition started by our founders, Jan and Steve Martin, of giving resources, time and energy to those non-profit organizations, events and activities that support local schools and kids, protect our natural resources, and make this a better community for local residents and all Oregonians.

“Martin North has either hosted or helped to coordinate dozens of Make a Wish children’s wishes to go to the Oregon Coast, often engaging the many small town business partners in the Northern Coastal towns to the work of making each wish unique and special. They bring their expertise in hospitality and entertaining to a new level when hosting a wish family…. It’s about more than just excellent hospitality and service, this is a company with a huge heart. They are what is great about Oregon.”

Laila Cook, Executive Director, Make-a-Wish Oregon

We encourage all Martin North employees to get involved, and to bring to our charitable committee the causes and events that mean the most to them.  Due to the volume of requests from so many worthwhile causes, we focus on four key areas:

  • Arts
  • Education
  • Child-Related Causes
  • Environmental Stewardship

We do not donate for the purpose of third-party giving (i.e., to an organization doing a fundraiser for another organization).

If you are interested in applying for a donation, please submit an application. Our Charitable Contributions Committee meets once a month to review all the submitted applications. A written response will be sent no later than 45 days from the receipt of your application.
