TORONTO FOUNDATION IS A REGISTERED CHARITY AND HOME TO 500+ COMMUNITY-MINDED PHILANTHROPISTS

We exist to create a more fair and just society where everyone can thrive. Together with our fundholders we granted $19M last year to organizations in Toronto and across Canada. We are committed to listening, learning and working in partnership with communities and we invite our Fundholders to join us.

we work in two ways

Fundholders Make Their Own Grants

Individuals, groups, and organizations can set up donor advised funds and make grants to the charities they care about. We offer back-end services and advice to increase the impact of your giving.   

Toronto Foundation Runs Strategic Granting Programs and Makes Impact Investments 

We make grants and impact investments that address pressing needs and opportunities, and support communities to reduce inequality. We take our direction from the Toronto's Vital Signs report, our equity lens on the city and the role of leading nonprofits. Donors can support this work by contributing to our funds. 

We can help you make informed decisions to maximize the impact of your giving by offering learning events and tools on equitable granting, research and insights, as well as opportunities to connect with peers and community leaders.   

We are guided by

Humility in our relationships.

To create a more fair and just society where everyone can thrive by mobilizing those with resources and the will to partner with others.
