Martha’s Village & Kitchen has reached a significant milestone for its funding campaign for facility and program improvements. $2,700,000 in pledges was announced yesterday towards Martha’s $5,000,000 campaign goal. In addition, another $1,000,000 is pledged as soon as the campaign reaches $4,000,000 leaving just $1,300,000 left to raise. This fundraising success sets a trajectory for the organization to reach, and even exceed its goal.

The ‘Renewing Hope, Rebuilding Lives’ campaign will fund improved Martha’s Village & Kitchen facilities and enhanced programming for Coachella Valley families and individuals who require emergency housing assistance, homeless prevention services, or community resources. Funds are also slated to create a new culinary program to provide food service employment opportunities at area institutions and restaurants and to expand Martha’s licensed Child Development Center.”
