Henry McCance tapped the skills and passions of his two daughters to set up the McCance Family Foundation.

What drives his philanthropic ambition? “Maybe this comes from my father and his values,” he responds. “Toys like big boats just don't appeal to me. I'd rather try and make our world a better place.”

Working with talented educator Donna Dunson, Henry McCance ventured outside his Florida gated community to help charter middle schoolers build model rockets – as well as to be a role model. His calls these Bok Academy kids “truly impressive.”
