We are Toronto’s community foundation
building a city of informed and engaged philanthropists committed to accelerating meaningful change for all.
What’s a community foundation?
We exist to improve quality of life for people in a specific geographic area — highlighting needs, engaging donors and making grants. Philanthropists come to Toronto Foundation to simplify and enhance their charitable giving.
We’re now accepting applications!
Applications are now open for the second round of funding for the Investment Readiness Program. Learn more.
