The Tree For Me Facilitated Grant Program is perfect for charitable and non-profit organizations* seeking to engage their neighbourhoods in community-building and environmental initiatives. We support dedicated community groups and organizations across the City because we know they are fantastic leaders and mobilizers. By applying, groups commit to to host a Tree For Me event** and distribute at least 50 free trees to their friends and neighbours. In exchange, we provide access to dedicated funding, native trees, hands-on event support, and tree expertise.
Tree For Me lets community groups do what they do best: engage their communities. By working together, we will put more trees in our yards, more trees in our communities, and more trees in our city.
YOU CAN BE PART OF THE MOVEMENT TO GROW TORONTO’S TREE COVER!
*The Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation is a Public Foundation. As a result, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) permits the Foundation to make grants or distributions only to registered charities or qualified donees.
A non-profit organization that is not a registered charity wishing to apply for funding from the Foundation may consider a trusteeship with a registered charity that would receive the funds for the proposed project. The CRA requires this relationship to be set out in writing, signed by the charity and nonprofit organizations.
**We love new ideas! Community groups wishing to adjust the Tree For Me delivery method are encouraged to submit a proposal along with their application.
