Help save the precious monarch!

Every day, with the support of thousands of donors in the greater Toronto region, we are building The Living City®, where human settlement can flourish forever as part of nature's beauty and diversity.

The Living City Foundation supporting Toronto and Region Conservation

The Living City® Foundation is the fundraising and charitable arm of Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA). The Foundation exists to connect, engage, and inspire people and organizations to donate to support TRCA's Living City vision where human settlement can flourish forever as part of nature's beauty and diversity.

Established in 1961, the Foundation is governed by an independent volunteer board of directors and has raised millions of dollars over the years. Key TRCA programs funded by the donors through the Foundation include: outdoor education, habitat restoration, ecological monitoring, community engagement, trail development, recreational park development and other key environmental projects within the Greater Toronto Area. The Foundation also serves as the support vehicle for gifts to Black Creek Pioneer Village.

The 23rd Annual Manulife Paddle the Don was a huge success thanks to all of our dedicated volunteers & supporters! Thank you!  Proceeds will be used to support TRCA in the ongoing effort to protect, conserve, and enhance the Don River watershed.
