RTOERO distributes $87,000 in grants to back community projects across Ontario

Toronto, Nov. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Twenty-two community projects across Ontario are getting a boost thanks to funding from RTOERO's annual community grants campaign. 

Since 1968, RTOERO has been a voice for teachers, school and board administrators, educational support staff and college and university faculty and staff in their retirement. Our mission is to improve the lives of our members and seniors. 

In each RTOERO district, members take on many volunteer and advocacy roles. Districts can also apply for community grants that support a local program. 

This year's community grants total $87,471 ? for projects that support seniors, children, the most vulnerable, community connections and the environment.  

"Across Ontario, grassroots actions can stitch a community together. That's the idea behind the grants program, whose impact is felt widely," says Martha Foster, chair of the board at RTOERO. "Our members care about their communities, and in partnership with great organizations that caring translates into action on the ground. We believe in a better future, together." 

Each year, a committee of RTOERO members assesses the merits of each grants submission. Since the inception of the program 22 years ago, RTOERO has donated more than $1.9 million to more than 525 programs and projects.

RTOERO is a bilingual trusted voice on healthy, active living in the retirement journey for the broader education community. With 82,000+ members in 51 districts across Canada, we are the largest national provider of non-profit group health benefits for education retirees.
