We Believe Businesses Should Have a Positive Impact on the Community
At The Benefits Trust, we truly believe that businesses should strive to make a difference in their communities. The Benefits Trust is committed to giving back through involvement in community programs, local charities, and awareness events.
The following are charities The Benefits Trust contributes to regularly.
Ronald McDonald House Canada
For over 25 years, The Benefits Trust has actively participated in the fundraising gala held by Ronald McDonald House Canada. At this event, 100% of donations go to the cause and McDonald’s takes care of all overhead costs.
In 2013 and 2014, our President Rob Crowder was the Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer – at both the Mt. Tremblant and Whistler events – as he has done for the past 25 years. The most 2013 event raised an amazing $250,000, and the 2014 event raised over $175,000. More than $5 Million has been raised over Rob’s 25 year involvement.
We look forward to supporting RMHC at future events.
The charity provides a place to stay near the hospital for families of sick children. While staying in a Ronald McDonald House, the family does not have to worry about daily household tasks. Each house has dedicated volunteers who ensure that everything is taken care of. There are currently 14 Ronald McDonald houses in Canada, which provide a home away from home for over 10, 000 families of sick children each year.
In November, The Benefits Trust employees participate in Movember by growing moustaches (or trying to) and raising money for men’s health. At the end of the month, we proudly match the funds raised by our mo-tivated employees.
Movember is an awareness and fundraising campaign that happens annually throughout the month of November. Men begin clean-shaven and grow their moustaches throughout the month, raising money and support for men’s health issues – specifically prostate cancer and mental health initiatives. In 2012, Movember raised a sum of $144.4 million CAD for their cause.
