A Year in the Life of your Fund

April

Happy New Year! April 1st is the beginning of the Toronto Foundation's fiscal year. We are currently completing our year-end financial reporting and establishing the amount that will be avaliable to grant from your Fund in 2014-2015. You will hear from us in early June with that amount.

June

You can expect to receive your first quarterly update of the fiscal year. Included you will find:

an update on the Foundation’s endowment pool’s investment performance; a copy of your annual Fund Statement, which provides the amount you have available to grant this fiscal year; and a copy of your grant history from the previous year; as well as our latest annual report.

Check your email for an invitation to come celebrate all that makes Toronto a vibrant city! At Vital Toronto we celebrate all of the work of the Vital Toronto Fund including the recipients of our Vital Toronto Fund grants.

Bring your family and friends – we promise you’ll leave inspired

August

The second quarterly update will be sent to you informing you of the Foundation’s endowment pool’s investment performance, and other news about the Foundation's activities.

October

We release our Toronto’s Vital Signs  Report, our annual snapshot on the quality of life in our city. Plan to join us at the launch event.

You will receive your third quarterly update on the endowment pool’s investment performance, your own copy of the Vital Signs Report and  other news on the Foundation’s activities.

December

You may be thinking of making a year-end donation to your Fund or contributing to the Vital Toronto Fund. To receive a charitable donation tax receipt for this calendar year, please make sure we receive the donation at our offices on or before Dec. 31st. You may also wish to make grants from your Fund to any of your favourite charities. Please let us know early in the month to ensure processing

February

We’ll be in touch to remind you of your “available to grant” balance. You’re under no pressure to grant, of course, but if you’d like to we will be happy to assist. You’ll also receive the last quarterly update of the fiscal year on the endowment pool’s investment performance, as well as our annual impact report for the Vital Toronto Fund.

March

As we wrap up the fiscal year, we ask you to send us your grant recommendations by mid-March to ensure timely processing. Grants are not processed during the period between March 10 - April 1, as we complete year-end financial reporting.
