We see Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 as an important moment in our country’s and our city’s, history and future. It’s an opportunity, not only to celebrate together, but to reach across divides and build new connections. To weave together thousands of local stories to build a new narrative of our country and its peoples. And to imagine what’s next, together.
This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between Toronto Foundation, Community Foundations of Canada (CFC), the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
Toronto Foundation is raising $150,000 to unlock an additional $150,000 matching grant made available by Community Foundations of Canada. The Fund will support grants of up to $15,000 to local charities and qualified donees to help build belonging, inclusion, Reconciliation, and connection. Grantees are expected to match the grant in-kind or in cash. It’s a chance to encourage all Canadians to contribute to their communities in a way that will foster a greater sense of belonging, support meaningful reconciliation, and leave a lasting legacy for our communities and our country.
