Why support the RTO/ERO Foundation


As one of the few Canadian Foundations exclusively supporting research and education in Geriatrics and Gerontology, the RTO/ERO Foundation offers a unique opportunity to build on the collective efforts of our retired educators to advance research and improve the knowledge of health and social care providers in working with their older patients and clients.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Foundation has already funded an endowed Chair in Geriatric Medicine at the University of Toronto; has awarded grants to four additional research and training projects; and has provided its inaugural grant to a project that is addressing the troubling trend of social isolations among our seniors.

By supporting the RTO/ERO Foundation, you are joining a growing group of individuals and companies who want to ensure that our seniors get the care and support they need.
