Welcome to the web pages of the Partnership Development Unit of Parks, Forestry & Recreation. The Partnership Development Unit helps grassroots community groups with their fundraising projects, and we welcome support and funding from corporations, foundations and philanthropists. Working together, we have successfully raised millions of dollars for parks, recreation and urban forestry projects for the benefit of Torontonians and visitors. Please contact us to discuss your needs and projects.
The new Parks, Forestry & Recreation Step-by-Step Fundraising Guide is now available! This invaluable resource will help community groups successfully plan and execute their fundraising programs for park, recreation or urban forestry projects. Available as a PDF download or ask your councillor for a print edition.
Have a project in mind for a park or recreation facility enhancement? Community groups can partner with Parks, Forestry & Recreation by submitting the Project Application Form. Once your project is on the approved work plan, we’ll help you with fundraising and other support measures.
