The Middletown Community Foundation was incorporated as a component of the United Way in 1976. It grew slowly until 1986 when it became a free-standing foundation. Elliot and Mae Levey challenged the community to match their $1 million donation and create a true community foundation. Middletonians committed $6.7 million and continue their generous support. Since then, assets have grown to more than $33 million in assets in 2014.
We secure permanent and growing assets for the area’s changing needs, serving as the perpetual community endowment funding projects, programs and scholarships that benefit education, the arts and human needs in Franklin, Madison, Monroe, Trenton and Middletown.
We create, pursue and execute initiatives targeting immediate community needs, while offering donors a wide variety of tax-deductible options, large and small, to participate in the future development of our community.
