J.A. Perras Fund (OSOTF) (762220101096)



J.A. Perras Fund


This fund was established by Raymond Perras (BA ‘69, BASc ‘72), president of Consultations Repars. Mr. Perras played for the University football team in 1968 and 1969. Upon establishing the fund in 1997, he was a member of the hockey and football coaching staffs at the University; he was also a member of the Board of Governors, a member of the Board of the Alumni Association and a member of the Board of the 13th Man Chapter, which groups former football Gee-Gees. With this fund, Mr. Perras wanted to honour the memory of his father, J.A. Perras.

The donor thanks the Government of Ontario, which helped to create this fund through its generous matching contribution.
