G. W. (Bill) Harris Fund
This community fund was started by one of our founding fathers, Mr. G.W. (Bill) Harris, as a granting fund for charitable organizations who need extra funding for projects.
Mr. Harris started out his career as an accountant, but his love for his community and desire to make it better changed his direction. In the early 1970’s Bill became involved in local politics and he was Mission’s mayor for three terms. He was awarded the honour of Freeman of Mission in 1982. In the late 1980’s Bill became one of the founding members of the Mission Community Foundation. He stated:
“Becoming a founder in the Mission Foundation was my greatest contribution to the community”.
We are grateful to Mr. Harris and our other founding fathers for recognizing the need to build the Mission Community Foundation and realizing that together we can make a difference in our community.
It is the wish of the Mission Community Foundation to continue the work that the founders started. If you would like to help charitable organizations in our community, please donate today!
