About Us

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

In 2015-16 grants were made to 818 charitable organizations, for a total value of $14.4M.

Our granting is initiated in two key ways: donor-led through our Donor Advised, Field of Interest, and Designated Funds, and Foundation-led through our strategic grant streams and TVS Initiatives. In addition, Toronto 2015 Sport Legacy Fund distributed $5.1M for the maintenance of three TO2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games venues.

For a full list of grants go the Grants and Distributions Made section of our Annual Report. Details of our city-building work can be found in the Our Work in Toronto section of the website.
