Welcome to the Martha Kidd Foundation
The Martha Kidd Foundation is a non-profit organization created in memory of our friend, Martha Jo Kidd, in order that her passion for life and her unquenchable thirst for knowledge lives on through the hearts and minds of those less fortunate by providing educational scholarships as well as providing grants for community improvement projects and outreach services in Cincinnati’s urban areas.
In 2005, the Martha Kidd Foundation was born out of the grief of losing a dear friend who truly inspired with her tenacity to better not only herself but also those around her and her community. We hoped to keep that spirit alive through helping others improve their own lives and their communities as well. We also hoped to be able to show young girls how sports could build self-esteem and teach camaraderie and the benefits of teamwork. Throughout that time, you have consistently and generously come through to make those hopes realities. And we hope that you don’t underestimate our gratitude or the gratitude of each and every student and organization that the MKF has been able to help. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all of you.
