In 2017 we were able to donate almost $100,000 to local, grassroots charities in Toronto. Check out some of the charities that we work with.
Our Grants Committee takes a hands-on interest in our recipients and their work.
Charitable donations are made with the needs of the most vulnerable people in mind, including women, children and those new to the country.
We provide most of this support through agencies which provide food, counseling, housing, recreational programs and other needed services. In order to make sure that the funds of the Society are needed and that they are used in accordance with the goals of the Society, members of the Grants Committee visit each charity regularly. The charities we support assure us that our support is important to them, especially as government funding is being cut back, new affordable housing for the poor is not being created, and the income of the poor is not rising as quickly as the cost of living in our city. All of the funds raised through membership donations and profits from events of the Society are used to help comfort, feed, teach and support others. The St. Andrew’s Society of Toronto supports a wide variety of agencies.
