HyLand was formed in 2012 to manage the donation of a large portfolio of rental and development properties across B.C. to the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC).
The intent of the donor was to provide for the basic necessities of those in greatest need around the world – and he believed that MCC had the right experience and track record to implement this vision.
HyLand functions like an endowment in preserving and growing the capital base and annually donating revenue back to MCC to fund its international relief and development programs. Part of HyLand’s mandate is to facilitate similar legacy donations for those who would like to devote a portion of their wealth to help create a better world. The endowment principle ensures that these donations can continue to have an impact in perpetuity.
HyLand functions as a sophisticated real estate investor and is actively involved in land development, property management, and ground-up construction. We are an ideal partner for individuals and organizations that have shared values and a desire to create projects that benefit the local community and the broader world.
Hyland's vision is to expand the mission of MCC, globally and locally, with income from endowed and managed assets.
Hyland manages a portfolio of property investments that produce profits annually for the ministry of MCC BC and encourages the donation of Business and Property Legacies for the support of MCC charitable activity.
Hyland is the vehicle for receipt of assets (land, businesses or buildings), development, and operation of these businesses for the support of MCC’s relief, development and peace work globally and locally.
THE BOARD OF hYLAND BELIEVES
there are faithful men and women throughout BC who recognize that the assets they’ve accumulated over a lifetime of hard work are not their own. These men and women are eager to use these resources to have a significant impact for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Hyland is well positioned to help these individuals fulfill this vision.
Through the hard work and dedication of its Board, staff and supporters, along with strategic partnerships with developers and builders, Hyland is helping to create a legacy that will have an impact for generations.
