It is a time to listen, learn and act.

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

It is a time to listen, learn and act.


It is a time to listen, learn and act. We are committed to listening to, learning from and funding grassroots leaders and organizations working to right inequalities in our city.

From our last Vital Signs report we know that the majority of Black community members doubt they will be treated fairly by police. We know that racialized populations are faring far worse compared to white residents across all quality of life issues we track including income, housing, health and wellness, and safety.

We are proud to have funded and worked with these Black-led and Black- serving organizations working to dismantle racism in a variety of ways. If you have the means to do so, please consider making a donation to these organizations that are doing the heavy lifting to right inequalities that persist right here in Toronto.
