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

The purpose of the Ұ Foundation is to advance equitable economics and environmental stewardship within, but not limited to, the urban ecosystem of Toronto and surrounding locales.

The overarching goal will be to align with and contribute to:

i) 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) initiative launched by the Rockefeller Foundation as a multi-lateral movement to address impacts of urbanization, globalization and climate change

ii) UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 to “make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable” with an integrative approach to addressing all 17 global goals

Through micro-grants and impact investing, the Ұ Foundation will support organizations including small to mid-sized charities and initiatives that may be overlooked by institutional funders.

This Fund’s granting purpose is subject to change at the request of the Donor Advisor.
To enable the Donor Advisor to properly recognize donors for their contributions, Toronto Foundation will share your contact information and donation amount with the Donor Advisor unless you have checked the anonymous box on the donation form.
