Together, we can meet Toronto’s unmet needs.

Toronto is the capital of wealth inequality in Canada. Since the pandemic emerged, the gap between rich and poor has only intensified, resulting in greater health and economic hardships for those already struggling.

As one of the largest social service agencies in Toronto, WoodGreen works with communities and policymakers to deliver life-changing impacts and create new opportunities to thrive. We serve 37,000 people each year through innovative programs designed to reduce poverty and improve health and wellbeing. None of this work would be possible without a strong network of supporters who champion the needs of the most vulnerable. Through your generous donations, you can drive real and lasting change on the most important issues facing our city.
