President's Message


It is hard to believe The Marina Foundation is coming up on our 12th year of operation. I have been honored to lead the organization from start up to now and I look forward to many years of continuing to serve to benefit our Marina community.

Over our short existence we have already accomplished some very needed projects, provided for some great community programs, and have given out scholarships to students graduating from Marina schools.

Over the past few years we have helped to fund various nutrition programs for our youth and our community, we have helped raise funds for an ADA Van to serve our Seniors, we have contributed to the expansion of the Food Pantry at the Veterans Transition Center and helped to provide funding to re-imagine our Community playground. We awarded our annual Man and Woman of the Year awards, organized our annual Christmas Tree Lighting and provided over $10,000 in scholarship funds this past year alone, plus a whole lot more.

Programs and projects like these don’t just happen. They take the hard work, dedication and funding from our Marina community and beyond. It is our mission to help provide the conduit to making these happen so that our entire Marina community benefits.

We as a Board thank you for your continuing support!

Steve Emerson, President
