What is the Grant Standbrook Maine Hockey Forever Fund?

Grant Standbrook and Red GendronCoach Red Gendron and friends established the Grant Standbrook Maine Hockey Forever Fund in 2014 with the University of Maine Foundation to honor a friend and long-time former coach, and to engage former players and coaches in supporting Black Bear hockey.   Coach Gendron is contributing generously to the Standbrook Fund on an annual basis.  His gifts, and others like it, will help UMaine meet the Savage Challenge, establishing a generous endowment for UMaine Hockey.  Tom ’68 and Sally Savage created the Savage Challenge in October 2014 to match endowment gifts from former UMaine Hockey players and coaches.  The Savage Challenge and Grant Standbrook Maine Hockey Forever Fund are examples of two initiatives to help build the endowment for UMaine Hockey.
