Our Charity Work

The St. George’s Society Toronto helps fund charities in four areas: education, social and community services, health, and the arts. We are currently accepting applications for one-year funding only.

Applications for funding must be sent electronically to, and addressed to the Charitable Trust Committee. Honouring our long tradition of helping in the city, groups must be in the Toronto area.

The majority of funding decisions are made in August/September each year and communicated shortly thereafter.

Submissions for funding should be made no later than July 31 of the submission year and must include:

  • A 500-word proposal of how the requested funds will make a difference to your organisation (less than 500 words is accepted – we value precision in thought and concision in writing). We will not read past 500 words;

  • Background and history of organisation;

  • List of Board of Directors;

  • Staff breakdown (number of employees, not names);

  • List of corporate, foundation, and private donors;

  • Audited Financial Statements for the last two years.
