The world is starting a new millennium and Mission Community Foundation is working on several goals. A newly implemented Community Fund was started in 1998 and a Gala was held on February 19, 2000 to encourage contributions. A $10,000 cheque was presented by First Heritage Financial Group at the event. It was reported that over $185,000 was raised that year; for the new Community Fund as well as the newly created Negrin Fund.
Additionally, benefactors Victor & Hilda Hollister were honoured by the BC School Superintendents Association for their philanthropy through Mission Community Foundation, University of the Fraser Valley and Trinity Western University.
