Toronto Foundation, established in 1981, pools philanthropic dollars and facilitates charitable donations for maximum community impact. The Toronto Foundation’s individual, family, and organizational Funds number more than 500 and it administers more than $480 million in assets. Through strategic granting, thought leadership, and convening, it mobilizes people and resources to increase the quality of life in Toronto.
In this first chapter of our growth, the Equality Fund and the Toronto Foundation have co-signed an agreement with the Government of Canada to ensure the effective stewardship of its $300 million CAD contribution. Under this agreement, the Toronto Foundation acts as the Equality Fund’s fiduciary partner. The Equality Fund will assume sole responsibility for this function as its Design and Build phase draws to a close.
