The Mission of the Franklin Township Dr. Martin Luther King Community Foundation is to fulfill Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream of unity among the races through promotion of racial harmony, equality and justice for all, opportunity for building strong relations among all people, educational opportunities and services, scholarships for the youth of Franklin Township and unity celebrations for our entire community.  

"I thank Investor's Bank for their continued support of the foundation and the community in general, Sean Hebbon, Franklin Police Department sgt., and FTMLKCF officer said. "The path to a great town is when those that are part of it make a conscious effort to invest in it.  That investment can be in the form of monetary donations or from volunteering and participation in activities.  Investors does both and we are grateful."  

The FTMLKCF recently received a commendation on behalf of the mayor and township council, after it awarded 12 Franklin High School Seniors with scholarships at the FHS Annual Senior Awards.

"We celebrated our 20th Anniversary MLK Breakfast this past January with a record number of community members in attendance, the mosts diverse ever," Nagy said. "It is very important to us to bring the community together, to celebrate and remember Dr. KIng and continue his dream here in our wonderful diverse Franklin Township.  From the breakfast, we were able to award 12 FHS students scholarships totaling $20,000. Our deepest thanks to Investors and our community and businesses for their ongoing generous support."
