Give5 Grants

As participants in the Give5 campaign we have chosen to meet our 5% granting commitment in part by way of donations to certain charities we believe are particularly able to provide direct relief to the most vulnerable people and organizations in Toronto to help them meet the increased demand for their services and manage through the pandemic. Part of the approximately $1 million in additional philanthropic gifts we made in 2020 has gone to support organizations that are helping build a more resilient economy post-pandemic, as well as to organizations we partner with that have lost income as a result of the pandemic.

Following is a list of some of the organizations we supported as part of our Give5 commitment:

  • Covenant House, $100,000
  • The Daily Bread Foodbank, $100,000
  • WCS Canada, $50,000
  • Environmental Defence Canada, $50,000

  • Iron and Earth, $75,000
