Toronto Foundation

Community Benefit


We are Toronto’s community foundation. Created with the sole purpose of improving quality of life for people in this city now and forever. We do this by highlighting the greatest needs of Toronto’s communities, engaging donors with the city’s charitable landscape, and making grants. Donors partner with us for the strategic investment and administrative services we offer, as well as our community insights. 

For over 100 years, philanthropists have come to community foundations to create permanent endowment funds for the cities they love. The net investment return on the value of their original donation is then available to provide grants to charitable organizations every year in perpetuity.   


Our Impact

Our impact is your impact. Leaving a legacy at Toronto Foundation is about creating the change you want to see in the world. We can work with you to identify how to have the greatest impact with your legacy today, tomorrow and forever. Tangible and sustainable change is created when donors listen, learn more deeply and become engaged with the community in creating a more fair and equal city. That’s why we’re proud to support and share our connections with smaller and mid-sized organizations that do so much of the heavy lifting involved in addressing inequalities.
