Supporter Spotlight
Brian Martin

Brian Martin is a member of the CalvertHealth Foundation Board of Trustees and serves as Co-Chair of the foundation’s Rising Star program which celebrates youth philanthropic support of the CalvertHealth Foundation.

“Health care touches all of us – it seems at some point or another, we are in the hospital, we have to go to the emergency room, or we are visiting a friend or loved one who is in the hospital. It is a place that is critical to our community and it is up to us to do all we can to ensure that CalvertHealth can continue to provide exceptional care to meet the growing needs of our community,” says Brian.

The CalvertHealth Foundation relies on the generosity of our donors to keep our services and technology progressive, to address the changing health needs of our community, and to attract and retain the best healthcare providers. This is part of the reason I joined the board - to give back to our community hospital that does so much for me and my family,” says Brian. “When I joined the Foundation board, I saw first-hand the need for fundraising support. As a soccer coach, I also saw first-hand the potential among Calvert County youth to make a difference in this community. It’s my love of youth potential and my dedication to giving back that led me to create the Rising Star program as an outlet to bring together these two passions. I have the ability to coach and to pay it forward – the Rising Star program has given all of us a way to bring the “pay it forward” opportunity to more young people and to celebrate the power of youth philanthropy.”

The Rising Star program has generated more than $10,000 in support and has recognized more than 300 youth philanthropists in Calvert and St. Mary’s counties.
