Negrin Community Fund
This fund was started from the bequest from Atileo Negrin in June of 1999.
Atileo Negrin grew up on Nicomen Island helping his parents run the family dairy farm from a young age. After selling the farm, Atileo worked at a local mill for several years before retiring to care for his parents.
His cousin, Nino, stated that although Atileo was not a member of any organized groups in the valley, he was passionate about Mission and wanted to support community projects through this fund. Surviving family member, Emily Negrin, believes that Atileo would be pleased to see what grants from his fund have done to help the community groups in Mission.
Atileo’s friends and family regarded him as an institution who will be missed but never forgotten and through this fund, he never will be.
