OUR PEOPLE, PUBLICATIONS AND POLICIES

Almost 40 years ago Fraser Deacon set up Toronto Foundation – a registered charity and now one of over 190 community foundations across the country.  We’re on the younger side, considering the community foundation movement is close to 100 years old in Canada. In the last few years we’ve prioritized our work on the principles of the new philanthropy to help shift power and funding imbalances in our city. 

Find links below to learn more about our people and what we do. Check out how we’re furthering equality by reading our interviews with media, or one of our research publications or past annual reports.
