New Funding Opportunity
We’re committed to supporting charities, hospitals, and grassroots groups that are working to empower people and strengthen communities in the Greater Toronto Area.
As part of this commitment, we’ve launched a new funding opportunity for local grassroots organizations and community-led groups.
The deadline to apply for the GTA Community Grants Program is Friday, March 24th.
Looking Back on 2022
2022 was a time of reflection and growth for the Peter Gilgan Foundation.
Health care remains an important component of what we fund and we are so proud of the partnership announced with Trillium Health Partners.
At the same time, we launched a new strategy that seeks to rebalance our giving and increase our funding commitments to climate change, Indigenous youth, food security, youth mental health, and international gender equity to represent the interests and passions of the entire Gilgan family.
We hope you enjoy reading a bit about the work being done in partnership with the Peter Gilgan Foundation.
