In 1993, Sandra and Joseph L. Rotman made a gift of $3 million through the Rotman Family Foundation towards the construction of a new state-of-the-art facility for the University of Toronto's business school. In 1997, they made an additional gift of $15 million, and the School was aptly re-named in Joseph Rotman's honour.
