Park People’s work is generously supported by a range of corporations, foundations, government agencies and individuals. We are grateful for their support.
One of our founding sponsors, TD has been a supporter of Park People programs since 2010. TD support enables us to host the annual Park Summit, provide support to park friends groups across the city, implement the vision of the 5 km Green Line linear park and provide micro-grants to new parks groups in underserved neighbourhoods through the TD Park Builders grants program.
With a commitment of $5 million over three years, The W. Garfield Weston Foundation launched The Weston Family Parks Challenge to ensure the long-term sustainability of Toronto’s parks. The Weston Family Parks Challenge supports projects that enhance the natural elements in parks, engage a broad range of partners and the local community, offer new solutions to manage and maintain parks, and have the potential to be replicated in other jurisdictions.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation has partnered with Park People and The W. Garfield Weston Foundation in a three year co-funding initiative to support community-based protect and enhance park spaces and green infrastructure across Toronto.
