About Us


In the ultimate game of life, Nick Gary made a profound and lasting impression on all who knew him.  Nick’s transition on January 24, 2016, left family and friends with both fond memories and an unwavering commitment to keep his name relevant and his rich legacy alive.  Recognized for his keen intelligence, his passion and knowledge of all sports, and his genuine willingness to help others made Nick unique.  Whether it was teaching and tutoring in College of the Mainland’s Process Technology classes, or helping those in financial need, Nick was always eager to help others.

The Nick Gary Foundation is a non-profit tax-exempt organization. Funds raised are tax-deductible and support annual scholarships in Nick’s memory.  Scholarships are supported by annual fundraising events, in addition to caring supporters and sponsors. Our overall goal is to provide scholarships so students may extend their academic talents and goals beyond high school. Not only is your support of The Nick Gary Foundation deeply appreciated, but your donation strongly preserves our efforts to keep Nick’s legacy alive while financially assisting students continue their educational journeys.  In years to come, many students will benefit from your compassion and generosity.  For this, I am deeply grateful.
