Toronto Foundation Now Accepting Applications for National Fund for Gender Equality

Fund for Gender Equality

Please note: Applications for the Fund for Gender Equality are now closed.

We believe that a just recovery is a feminist recovery.

Toronto Foundation is proud to be participating in the Fund for Gender Equality in Canada, a new collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada and the Equality Fund, which is supported by the Government of Canada.

Through this fund, Toronto Foundation will deliver $320,000 locally to organizations working to support women, girls, Two-Spirit and gender-diverse individuals working towards a future grounded in equity, inclusion and justice. Eligible Toronto organizations can apply for up to $40,000 of funding. To create communities of true belonging, we need to advance gender equality. By participating in the Fund for Gender Equality, we and other participating foundations are also committing to a number of other actions, including an examination of our own organizational and investment practices for women. By catalyzing the community foundation movement and the thousands of Canadians we connect with each day, we believe we can do more than just foster gender equality. We have an opportunity to begin removing the long-standing barriers to it.
