The Yellowknife Community Foundation (YKCF) announces the establishment of the Milo Martin Memorial Fund, in memory of the late Milo Martin. Milo passed away on January 8, 2022.
Quote by Laurie Gault, Chair of the Yellowknife Community Foundation – “It is an honour to establish the Milo Martin Memorial Fund. So many Yellowknifers knew Milo and are friends or acquaintances of the McCann/Martin family. We hope that this fund will be a tribute to Milo and uphold the joy for life that was so evident in his young lifespan. We are deeply thankful to Shawn and to Jordan, long-time Yellowknife residents, for including the Community Foundation in their remembrances of Milo”.
Quote by Shawn McCann and Jordan Martin, parents of Milo Martin – “We are hoping with this scholarship that young people that don’t fit the traditional academic mold will be helped to succeed in their dreams the way Milo hoped to. ”
YKCF and its Board of Directors would like to extend our deepest condolences to the McCann/Martin family.
Milo’s Celebration of Life will be held on June 29, 2022 and donation cards will be available. Donations to the fund can also be made online through CanadaHelps.
The Yellowknife Community Foundation was formed in 1993 to provide interested individuals and organizations with a means of supporting projects in our community for the enduring future. The Foundation is not singularly dedicated to any specific area of support. It embodies a simple concept – that people working together can make a difference.
