Mission Community Foundation Funds

Donate to any of our funds below, or filter based on a category of interest

The first fund entrusted to the Mission Foundation in 1987 was through the estate of the late Margaret Erskine, in the amount of $228,000 to be dedicated to post-secondary education for the students of Mission.   Since then, we have received monies from many organizations and citizens in Mission and the Fraser Valley Regional District and are pleased to say that we now have 84 different funds totaling just over 4.2 Million Dollars.

We consider it an honor to be entrusted with these funds and disburse them based on our benefactors wishes.  The monies are held in trust, invested prudently, and the interest monies are disbursed through scholarships and bursaries as well as dedicated funding for specific fields of interest.


Who benefits from these funds?

Middle School students can receive a GW Cooke award for Math or Science Excellence.  This award is a form of encouragement to students to stay on track with their education and to continue to contribute to the community through friendship and volunteerism.

Secondary School students can apply to receive Bursaries & Scholarships from a variety of funds dedicated to general and specific educational paths.  Each year, we review, interview, and select recipients based on academic achievement overall as well as academics their chosen field, all around achievement which takes into account volunteerism, sports, arts and work experience.  Written and verbal communication skills as well as general knowledge of the community and world are also scored.  We then look at the career paths stated by the students and match them to award monies available.

Organizations benefit in the form of Grants from the Foundation.  We have several dedicated funds for the benefit and enhancement of the community.  These grants are disbursed three times yearly.

If you are interested in starting a fund for a specific field of interest or a scholarship, please contact our Office Manager at 604.826.5322 and she can give you further information on how you can leave a legacy for others to remember you by.
