The word ‘philanthropy’ can mean different things to different people, but for Community Living Toronto it means the desire to give back to your community by helping a cause that you feel strongly about. It means making a commitment to use whatever resources you have available, whether it be your time, your money or both to make someone’s life better.

Check out the full list of award winners here: Winners of the 2018 Philanthropy Awards

My biggest fear was just how to interact with the individuals in the program having never spent a great deal of time with an individual with a disability…However with time, they opened up to me. The individuals in the program are amazing, warm and so funny“. – Ed Gamrot
