Milton and Jean Broderick Charitable Fund

Milton and Jean Broderick

Milton Broderick, founder of M.C. Broderick Signs, was a successful businessperson and true philanthropist. Coming from humble roots, Milton was forced to quit school in grade 10 to support his family. After a short time, he went back to night school at H.B. Beal and studied sign writing – an endeavour that led to 40 years of success in the commercial sign business.

Milton and his wife Jean were passionate about giving back, especially to causes supporting children and youth. It was shortly after Jean’s passing, and the year before he died, that Milton established their family fund at London Community Foundation (1993).

The Brodericks live on through the charitable granting that continues to this day. This includes the scholarship created by their daughter Darlene – the Milton Broderick Award – which is given each year to a graphic design student at Fanshawe College.

The fund also supports programs and initiatives including the East Village Animal Hospital, FEMAP (First Episode Mood and Anxiety Program), SARI Therapeutic Riding, Thames Valley Children’s Centre and Youth Opportunities Unlimited.
