Donate now to a Mission Community Foundation Fund

WHY DONATE?

Mission residents need a painless way to help others in need within their community. Mission residents care about their community and creating opportunities for people to realize their dreams. But finding out about the people who need their help, validating their needs, and coming up with a way to help deserving recipients is a complicated task. Community-minded people need a mechanism that takes care of these tasks for them and delivers their hard earned dollars to people that truly need them.

“Mission is my home and I’m proud to be a member of this community. This is where I work, live and play. It’s the place my children received their education, where I landed my career, and where I’ve found life-long friends. I’ve been so blessed to live here, I want to pay it forward by helping others enjoy an amazing life here too. Even when I’m gone, I want my legacy to live on by supporting the things I cherish about Mission, and the people I care so much about.”

The Mission Community Foundation makes it easy for accomplished citizens to expand their legacy by helping other deserving residents realize their goals and achieve success within our city.
