You've got to build.

I want to apply for a Canada’s 150th grant

Participating in the national program, Toronto Foundation is raising $150,000 to unlock an additional $150,000 matching grant made available by Community Foundations of Canada. The Fund will support grants of up to $15,000 to local charities and qualified donees to help build belonging, inclusion, Reconciliation, and connection. Grantees are expected to match the grant in-kind or in cash.

This grant stream is now closed. 

Shortlisted organizations will be notified in November, grantees will be notified by the end of December. All proposed projects must take place in 2017.

Broadly, the Fund will support local projects that:

  • BUILD vibrant and healthy communities with the broadest possible engagement of all Canadians.
  • INSPIRE a deeper understanding about the people, places, and events that shape our communities and our country.
  • ENCOURAGE participation in community initiatives, activities, and events to mark Canada’s 150th.

Example Projects: celebratory festivals, art activities and/or showcases, public history initiatives, educational workshops, Reconciliation programs, nature walks/hikes, environmental stewardship initiatives, documentary films, or other community building activities.
