We strongly believe in supporting local charities, especially during challenging economic times such as these, when the task of fundraising becomes all the more daunting. Our commitment is clear and simple: each year, Benchmark Benefit Solutions Inc. donates 2% of gross revenue to selected charities in the communities we serve.
In light of our expertise in health benefits we maintain a particular focus on health-related causes. Benchmark and its associated companies have been pleased to support a number of foundations including The Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Foundation, The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, The Toronto Grace Hospital Foundation, The Arthritis Society, Trillium Health Partners Foundation, Terry Fox Foundation, Cop-op Cred Program, Giant Steps, and The Toronto Rehabilitation Institute.
Each of Benchmark Benefit Solutions founding partners has had a special connection with Toronto's renowned Hospital for Sick Children through the years. In addition to helping raise funds for the hospital, we have all had family members treated at this world-class facility. For this reason, Benchmark Benefit Solutions announced a special $50,000 contribution to SickKids Foundation. These funds were directed towards the much-needed redevelopment of Sick Kids’ operating suites. This multi-million dollar project not only increased the hospital’s surgical capacity; it also created new space for children and their families to prepare for surgery in comfort and privacy. We are extremely proud to play a part in such a worthwhile initiative.
