Bettering the quality of life for people from a variety of backgrounds is at the heart of Crerar Hotel Group, which is why The Crerar Trust was established to give back to local communities. As a charitable trust funded by the Crerar Hotel Group, the Crerar Trust is tasked with gifting more than half of the company’s annual distributable profits to good causes. These organisations have links to where Crerar Hotels are based or have interests.
“The Trust has donated over £4 million in the past 10 years, to hundreds of community groups and charities. As Crerar Trust Chairman, Paddy Crerar, explains, “it’s our customers that are making the difference to everyday lives. Without their patronage we could give nothing back.”
Sadly, due to continuing uncertainties surrounding the pandemic, the trustees have made the difficult decision NOT to accept or consider applications until further notice.
We look forward to continuing support once we are able to do so.
Thank you for your understanding at this time.
Due to the uncertainties at present surrounding Coronavirus Virus the Trust meeting in May has been cancelled. The situation will be further reviewed at the end of the summer when a decision will be made about the Trust meeting in November.
In November 2019, the Crerar Trust donated its second round of funding this year. 38 charities and organisations received a total of £216,136.
The Crerar Trust is pleased to announce its first round of donations in 2019 totalling £207,862.52 to 26 charities with links to Crerar Hotels' locations. The charities and organisations meet a diverse range of needs in their communities, covering sport, therapy, special days, rehabilitation and more.
