Rangers announce the launch of new community fund


The Kitchener Rangers have announced the launch of their new independent community fund, Rangers Reach.

The non-profit is aimed at supporting the Waterloo Region community that continuously supports the Kitchener Rangers Hockey Club and will coordinate donations and community support previously managed by the organization’s business operations department with a goal of expanding their presence through philanthropy and outreach within the Rangers community.

“As we looked into the future we wanted to continue providing community support while maintaining our focus on operating a premiere CHL franchise”, said outgoing COO Steve Bienkowski in a release earlier this week.

“Based on industry best practices and research into comparable structures we identified that the community fund model would allow us to separate our community support programs from the day to day operations of the hockey club.  Staff remain focused on their ultimate responsibility of being the best organization possible for our fans and players and the fund team will continue our long-standing community support legacy and work towards even greater impact for Waterloo Region.”
