Vision 2020

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

This city is ours.

We’re redefining philanthropy.

And accelerating change.

More than 110 of Toronto’s Millennial and Gen X philanthropists are bucking stereotypes about their generations and collectively pledging more than $500,000 of their own wealth to build the city’s urban resilience. Through the Toronto Neighbourhood Resilience Project, these young philanthropists will work hand-in-hand with the City of Toronto, Toronto Foundation, community leaders and residents from across the city to invest in projects that will strengthen the city’s social fabric.
