Social Outreach Program

The GBC Outreach is a student run non-profit initiative at Rotman. Their mandate is to find fun and creative ways to get the Rotman community involved with supporting local charities in the Greater Toronto Area. Each year, the dedicated group of students organize fun events and initiatives. Since 2016, the Rotman community has raised over $33,000 for local charities thanks to flagship events such as the Annual Charity Auction, Movember and our Holiday Food Drive. Feeling strapped for cash? Not a problem. GBC Outreach helps students give back to the community through volunteering events such as the Junior Achievement Day, where our volunteers have the opportunity to teach and inspire grade school children for a day.
