Fund Facts: Albert McMahon Mission City Rotary FundThis Fund was established in 1989 by the Rotary Club of Mission Sunrise as a memorial to Albert McMahon. Mr. McMahon was one of the first members to join the Mission Rotary Club and he helped steward the growth of the Club in the early days. A quiet philanthropist, Mr. McMahon wanted to ensure that every child had the best possible opportunity to succeed and would donate monies towards education, housing or whatever was required. He donated land for a school and provided personal scholarships through Mission Senior Secondary School starting in 1954. If there was a sports team that needed a sponsor, he was there. The Rotary Club felt that Mr. McMahon should be memorialized for his contributions to the community and being strong supporters of the Mission Community Foundation, they looked to us to accomplish this task. This Fund is dedicated to providing funding for children within the City of Mission who are in special circumstances, and therefore in need of help. Funding has been used to provide both scholarships and granting for this purpose. Since inception this fund has given 48 awards totaling $56,481.00. If you would like to help children succeed, donate today! ... See MoreSee Less
