Toronto CREW supports a variety of programs with the purpose of promoting women’s success. In 2006, a donor-advised fund known as the Toronto CREW Foundation was established by a formal agreement with the Toronto Community Foundation when Toronto CREW decided it wanted to increase the impact of its existing funding activities.
While the Toronto Community Foundation continues to manage our endowment funds, Toronto CREW has built relationships with a diverse mix of charitable organizations throughout Toronto and Southern Ontario, with a focus on developing workplace and employment skills for women. Financial awards are made annually, and Chapter members serve as leaders/mentors in various training and workshop opportunities.
The strategic priorities of the Toronto CREW Foundation are to support the advancement of women in real estate and the overall advancement of women’s issues and education.
