At the head of the family foundation set up by his father, Saül Pomerantz, Montreal entrepreneur Terry Pomerantz is unanimously recognized as a wonderful philanthropist who helps sick children.
Here are a few excerpts from the testimonials we gathered from 5 personalities active in charitable and hospital organizations that care for children in need and their families.
Greg Gattinger, Volunteer Administrator of the Pomerantz Foundation
“What’s wonderful when you get involved as a volunteer with the Pomerantz Foundation is that you see with your own eyes how Sun Youth, Mira, Starlight use the money that the Pomerantz Foundation gives them. You also see the courage, the sincerity, the will to live of all these underprivileged, different or sick children who continue to smile at life. So you just want to do more for them!”
Brian Bingolf, Executive Director of the Starlight Children’s Foundation
“The Pomerantz Foundation is exceptional! All the Foundation wants is that the money it gives us gives happiness to others. Terry doesn’t want his name on a bronze plaque. He attends a few events. He sees the children smiling. We tell him stories of happy children. He gets touched by all of that and that’s enough for him. He knows we’re doing our job! Not only is Terry great, the whole Pomerantz Foundation team is great!”
Paola Habib MD, DABPN, FRCPC, Director of Child Psychiatry Services at the Center for Child Development and Mental Health of the Jewish General Hospital
“We are thrilled to receive such significant financial support from such benefactor friends as Mr. Pomerantz. The Pomerantz Foundation allows us to continue to provide quality care that meets the high standards of best practices in child psychiatry.”
Ernie Rosa, Director of Property Management for Sun Youth
“The generosity of Terry Pomerantz and the Pomerantz Foundation has never wavered. Since 2005, the Pomerantz Foundation has given us $100,000 every year to carry out projects that allow us to be much more productive. Thanks to this totally selfless support, Sun Youth has helped more people while developing better services.”
Danyael Cantor, Director of Development for the Jewish General Hospital Foundation
“The Pomerantz Foundation’s association with the Jewish General Hospital’s Child Psychiatry Services and, more specifically, its support for the speech therapy program, allows us to help with great success these children, who are among the most vulnerable in society, in order to ensure them a better future. ‘Save a life and you save the world,’ says a proverb. It is thanks to the support of Terry Pomerantz and his family foundation that we were able to create and maintain this speech therapy program, saving the lives of many children!”
