The tournament raised over $1.5 million for Baycrest Health Sciences this year. Coming in as the runner up for the most funds raised individually, Richard Crenianfundraised over $59,000 to support the cause. The team he played with, The Coop Architects were also runners up for most funds raised as a team with over $113,000 donated.
“I’m a big fan of hockey,” says Richard Crenian. “But I’m also passionate about using a sport to bring the community together to support an important cause, such as funding for Alzheimer’s research. That’s a big reason why I continuously support this tournament.”
Aside from partaking in the annual hockey tournament, Crenian decided in 2015 to increase his dedication to the charity and established a Match My Gift Campaign to further support Baycrest in Alzheimer’s care and research. With the Match My Gift Campaign, every dollar a generous donor gives, Baycrest will receive double the donation through Crenian’s support.
“The more I learned about Baycrest, the more impressed I became with the organization and the donor community,” says Crenian. “I wanted to honour these donors by matching their generosity, and increasing our impact for the cause together.”
Crenian’s Match My Gift Campaign will again take place in fall 2017. Accept Richard’s challenge this year and double your generous impact. Richard Crenian has created a $100,000 Matching Gift Fund to support the Annual Campaign for Baycrest. Crenian will match your donation dollar for dollar. Gifts by you and other donors will have double the impact.
