The Hygge Fund was created in 2018 as part of the Toronto Foundation’s Vision 2020 program. Hygge is a Danish concept describing coziness and comfort, and roughly translates as “a good social atmosphere”, and is often credited as part of how Danes stay happy through their long winters. Likewise, the founders of the Hygge Fund are interested in using philanthropy to support a good social atmosphere in Toronto. To them, that means a resilient community where inequalities are addressed and people are able to thrive in a deep network of strong relationships.
