Giving back – the greatest opportunity afforded us by our achievements.

Achievement can provide many opportunities. And there is none greater than the opportunity to support worthy causes.

One such cause is the Childhood Autism Foundation, which was started by Martin and Marjie Truax in 1985. They also founded the Friends for Autism Foundation in 1987 with the help of friends and board members.

Through charity events such as the annual Candlelight Ball, Atlanta Investment Conference & Magnolia Classic golf event, these two fundraising entities have been able to build the Emory Autism Center (on Emory University's campus), named after their son, Justin.

Martin serves on the finance committee of his church. He also is helping to build a religious vacation retreat in the North Georgia Mountains on property he has donated for that purpose.
