Spirit of Math Central Toronto

CIC gratefully acknowledges a generous $5,000 marketing/research sponsorship from Spirit of Math Central Toronto Campus. This sponsorship is a natural fit, as math and chess have inherent connections and many CIC program attendees are potential students for Spirit of Math’s math enrichment programs. As an innovative leader in after-school mathematics education, Spirit of Math’s 40-campus global community successfully addresses the needs of high-performing downtown Toronto students and their families.

The Marvin Rosenhek Community Chess Fund

CIC expresses deep appreciation for the Rosenhek family’s generous creation of a memorial fund in honour of Marvin Rosenhek (1929-2021), a lifelong avid chess player and Montréal lawyer of 65 years. The fund will support school and community educational programs directly. Marvin enjoyed spending time with family, nature, beekeeping, bridge, and spy novels, and continued playing chess with the Canadian Correspondence Chess Association into his nineties. Marvin will be remembered fondly by the CIC community for his passion and dedication to the game.
