The Port Authority is funded through private donations from area business, industry and individuals and by an annual appropriation from the County Commission ($67,500 for 2018). Our partners are critical to the future development of our County. Please visit our Partners Page to view a list of our supporters.
Contributions can be made through the Marietta Community Foundation or directly to the Port Authority as tax deductible gifts–annually, quarterly or monthly. To donate now, go to the donate button on this page and follow the instructions.
Our mission is to bring in new investment, create new jobs, retain and expand existing businesses so folks can maintain a good quality of life for their families now and for future generations.
Shovel ready sites (sites with all utilities) are key to bringing in new business; therefore, we are focused on the upgrade and expansion of the County’s basic infrastructure (i.e. water, sewer, gas, electric and fiber). Land is at a premium locally, so for those of you who want to invest for the long term, you can gift acreage for future development or allocate seed funds to finance a new project.
We thank you for your consideration and appreciate your support.
