Addison Jenner Rolke Wish Fund

Since Addison’s passing we have been searching for different means of comfort and support while looking to create a legacy in her memory and for others that face a similar challenge. We found a mutual fit with the Community Foundation of Mississauga and have created a tribute to Addison called “The Addison Jenner Rolke Wish Fund”. The Community Foundation works with local charities and has contributed over $7 million in grants back to the community since 2001.

The capital contributed to Addison’s Wish Fund will grow in perpetuity and part of the income earned is donated annually to charities. It is not a one-time contribution to these charities, giving is felt for generations to come as the growing capital creates future funding.

To date, the value of Addison’s Fund exceeds $262,900 and we have donated over $34,000 to six charities as follows:
