There are many ways to donate to projects undertaken by community groups working in partnership with Parks, Forestry and Recreation, or to donate to city-wide programs undertaken by the Division to improve the quality of life in Toronto.

Donations, including approved in-kind donations, may qualify for a charitable tax receipt. Donations must be made in accordance with the City of Toronto Donations Policy

The City of Toronto is grateful to the many donors who have contributed to parks, recreation and forestry projects for the well-being of residents and health of our ecosystem.

You can make a charitable donation to many local park, recreation and forestry projects through the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation, a non-profit organization.

Individual projects are listed on the Foundation’s website. The Foundation issues tax receipts for any donation of $10 or more, and accepts donations through its secure online site and through the mail.

Every Tree Counts
