About Us

We are an independent network for Toronto’s nonprofit sector. We work to create spaces where nonprofits and communities can flourish. We seek to bring together diverse nonprofits from across disciplines to address systematic issues that affect our sector, and to co-create solutions. We bridge the gap between the sector and government, elevating nonprofit voices in decision making processes.

To amplify the voice of Toronto’s diverse public benefit sector to government, funders and private sector and others in order to create an enabling environment and influence systemic change on issues relevant to the nonprofit sector and unique to the size, diversity and geography of Toronto.
