One of Hamilton’s longstanding private foundations, The Malloch Foundation, has turned to HCF to continue its legacy.

Established in 1964 by Francis and Kate Malloch as a memorial to their son David, the Malloch Foundation has been supporting local charities for five decades.

Hamilton-area organizations — like a sanctuary that rescues injured owls and an arts group that takes Shakespeare into local schools – have benefited from grants over the years. The Malloch Foundation has also helped some of Hamilton’s iconic institutions through good times and bad.

That legacy will continue as the Malloch Foundation becomes the Malloch Foundation Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation and four dedicated Malloch Foundation board members become part of the fund’s advisory committee.

George Simpson, a founding member of the Malloch Foundation and long time friend of David, who is stepping down after 50 years of service, feels that transferring the fund to HCF is the right decision. “Hamilton Community Foundation has the expertise to maintain the Malloch Foundation legacy. Its future is assured, and the excellent advisory committee will continue to make meaningful grants in David’s memory.”
