CanadaHelps is ecstatic and honoured to have CanadaHelps President and CEO, Marina Glogovac, and CanadaHelps founders, Aaron Pereira, Matthew Choi and Ryan Little named one of Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur Of The Year Special Citation award recipients.
The prestigious business award is presented to entrepreneurs who have made a difference in their field, and “encourages entrepreneurial activity among those with potential, and recognizes the contribution of people who inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievement”.
“We envision a society where all Canadians are committed to giving and participating in the charitable sector; and one where all charities have the capacity to increase their impact. We’re motivated by knowing that even the smallest charity can grow their capacity when they have access to good technology and education. By connecting Canadian charities to millions of Canadians through our online platform, we’re offering them the tools and resources that will enable them to be more effective in their own communities, in fulfilling their missions.”—Marina Glogovac, Aaron Pereira, Matthew Choi and Ryan Little
Announced on September 15th, the award will be presented to Marina, Aaron, Matthew, and Ryan at a gala even in Toronto on October 27th.
