Andrew Young

Growing up, Andrew Young never dreamed he’d be able to start his own foundation.

“I was raised in a modest household,” he says, “and I just didn’t realize what was possible.”

After his father’s passing in 2011, Andrew felt inspired to give back to the community, but didn’t know where to start. A quick Google search led him to London Community Foundation.

Before he knew it, he was participating in the ENGAGE! LONDON program – and being surrounded by like-minded young professionals who were passionate about making a difference was a turning point in his life.

Fast forward to 2015. Andrew was thriving professionally as a local mortgage broker and had received great satisfaction through his volunteer experiences. He was ready to share the gift of giving with others in the community.

“Why wait to give? With London Community Foundation, you’re making an impact now and later,” he says. “The community has given so much to me, and I want to make it stronger.”
