Carleton renames building Richcraft Hall to honour $3M Singhal family donation

November 3, 2016

Carleton University has officially renamed its River Building as Richcraft Hall to honour a $3M donation from the Singhal family and their company Richcraft Homes. The family’s donation will reportedly be placed in an endowment fund aimed at both sustainability and Carleton’s ability to pursue its institutional mission. In addition to the naming of Richcraft Hall, a 400-seat theatre on the second floor of the building will now be known as the Singhal Family Theatre. “Through development and community investment, Richcraft has worked to make Ottawa a better place to live, work and play,” said Christopher Carruthers, chair of Carleton’s Board of Governors. “Now they are making a further investment—their first gift to university education, and one that will make our city a better place in which to learn.” Carleton
