It is with great sadness we advise that our founding Father and mentor, Bill McGannon, passed away peacefully on August 25th, 2015. Bill left behind a legacy for all of us to follow. We were blessed to have him as a friend, mentor and/or business partner and we are left profoundly saddened by this loss.

A primary goal of The William H. McGannon Foundation is to create, manage and build endowment funds. Most donations are therefore held as endowment capital, and grant amounts are controlled to protect the long-term value of the fund and the grants that will be derived therefrom in the future.
