The Kilo Foundation’s current mission is to enable a brighter, more prosperous future for young, vulnerable Canadians.

“Kilo”, denoting multiplication by one thousand in the metric system, exemplifies the remarkable impact that any one individual can have on the world. We believe that, with the right building blocks, anything is possible. At this time, Kilo directs its resources and grants towards causes solving tough challenges affecting some of Canada’s most vulnerable by combating food insecurity, funding after school programs, and providing emerging young leaders with the confidence and opportunity to excel.

In 2017, Kilo was launched as a Founding Foundation in Toronto Foundation’s inaugural Vision Next (formerly known as Vision 2020) cohort, a program to mobilize the next generation of philanthropists.
