About The Martha Kidd Foundation

Our Mission

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.

Our Goals

  • To provide scholarship grants for educational effort at the post secondary school level.
  • To provide organizational grants to community based institutions in Cincinnati neighborhoods with preference for projects developing urban green space and gardening
  • To support outreach services in the Cincinnati Community that serve elementary school children with a preference for programs that emphasize literacy and athletics.
