Bobbie and Ted Trimble

Our relationship with Martin County started when local philanthropists Barbara “Bobbie” Briggs Trimble and her husband, Edward “Ted” C. Trimble, established the Briggs-Trimble Family Charitable Fund in 1989 at the Community Foundation to assist their favorite Martin County organizations.

In 1991, the “Palm Beach County Community Foundation” expanded to accommodate Martin County and became the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. Now, 21 nonprofit organizations receive checks each year due to the Trimble’s fund. The Trimbles also endowed two scholarship funds with the Foundation to benefit Martin County students.
