ANDPVA is one of five community-building organizations to receive 2022 Social Capital funding from the Toronto Foundation.

The Toronto Social Capital Grants pilot recognizes five high-impact, equity-led and serving organizations for their visionary work to enhance the social capital of Torontonians. Through a closed-call for proposals, organizations were invited to read the preliminary findings of our social capital research and indicate why and how they are responding to the issues and opportunities highlighted in the report. Selected organizations then came together in a sharing circle to discuss funding allocations, share organizational strategies and experiences, and explore opportunities for collaboration. The aim of the pilot is to better understand the role of community organizations in building social capital while also testing a new model that puts decision-making into the hands of the community.
