This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Update on IRP Grant Applications


Toronto Foundation is collaborating with Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) to promote and implement the national Investment Readiness Program (IRP) in Toronto, York and Durham Regions. This federal funding is designed to support positive impact in the community through social enterprise.

The first round of the Investment Readiness Program was highly competitive with over 200 applications submitted for these three regions alone. Toronto Foundation reviewed all the applications with several partners and volunteers, and has moved to the granting stage. An exciting set of Social Purpose Organizations has been selected: these include charities, not for profits and for-profits, serve a range of populations and are at different stages of investment readiness continuum.
