Mission Community Foundation has announced that a new fund was recently created by the Mission 2014 BC Winter Games.

The Games Legacy Fund will allocate $23,000 for grants toward sports infrastructure in Mission and for bursaries for athlete/coach/official development in Mission.

The Mission 2014 BC Winter Games also contributed $12,000 to the Public Art Endowment Fund, an existing fund since 2010. This fund’s objective is to provide funds to support public art which is accessible, has aesthetic qualities, reflects the values and beliefs of the community and celebrates our rich heritage.

The   Games has earmarked $2,000 of their donation for the purpose of initiating the creation of a permanent commemorative public art project recognizing the Mission 2014 BC Winter Games.

The Foundation encourages everyone to donate to these funds, or to any other, for the continued betterment of our community.
