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 acknowledge we are on the traditional territories of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Read about our work with Indigenous organizations. Read about our work with Indigenous organizations.
