I know everyone is tired of organizations with their hands out for donations to their various causes. This has become evident with the Just $10 campaign we’ve been running since November 1st. The Facebook post has over 4000 hits and 25 shares, and the reactions tell us that people do feel for this campaign.
However, while the cause is noteworthy and honorable, the donations have been limited. We urge you to contribute this week, if you are able, as the Credit Unions will collect for us until this Friday, November 17th. We are also set up to take donations online via PayPal through our website. www.missioncommunityfoundation.org (please share your mailing information so we can send you a tax receipt). ...

Mission Community Foundation has a new fund Announcing the Caring Fund
A Community Foundation is only as strong as its endowment funds. Mission Community Foundation recently announced that it would like to increase its endowment equity $2,000,000.00 by the year 2020.
Hearing that call to action, Rosemary & Gerry Nemanishen have created a new Endowment Fund. Long-time residents of Mission and deeply involved in community activities, they saw a need for support in the Humanities and the “Caring Fund” was created and is ready for distribution in 2018.
The Caring Fund is a granting fund that will provide grants to organizations that are involved in the care of the residents of Mission in need. If we do not receive applications for that purpose, there is a secondary option to assist in initiatives or projects that contribute to the arts, culture or heritage of Mission.
This is an open endowment fund. Any monies donated to this fund are added to the capital of the fund thus increasing the interest earned that will then be available for distribution.
We encourage you to contribute to this fund or to one of our other existing funds or to start your own.
To find out how, contact our Executive Director, Angie Hetlinger, at 604.826.5322 or email email@example.com. She will be happy to provide you with details and assist you in contributing to a fund that speaks to your heart. ... See MoreSee Less
