Emily Stegweit

Hi Phylicia! This was so helpful - thank you! I’m wondering if you can provide more details about the Friday webinar and how it will differ from today’s! :)
Jonsaba J
57:11
Thank you so much! Is there a conflict of interest for orgs with a trustee if your trustee is also applying for a Vital Signs grant?
Sariena Luy
57:47
Thank you so much for hosting this! How many organizations typically apply and how many do you choose?
Tamara Sabarini
58:50
Apologies if I missed this - is the application available in a Word Doc?
Liberty Bhaloo
01:07:03
We're a registered charitable organization with a Board, but we don't have a trustee. Are we still eligible? Sorry if this was asked already.
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
01:14:25
Andrea - yes, the grassroots group can complete the application as long as a trustee agreement is submitted as well
Carrie-Ann Goodfellow
01:16:09
Hi there! Just wanted to confirm that the grants are not available to charities with revenue over $3m at this stage?
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
01:17:44
Carrie-Ann - that is correct. I wouldn't describe $3M as a hard line so we'll certainly consider applications if your operating budget is slightly over that limit.
Carrie-Ann Goodfellow
01:19:58
Thank you Mohamed :)
Paula Messina
01:20:43
sorry my speaker isn't working
Paula Messina
01:20:59
yes
Paula Messina
01:21:23
in signing into the portal, if you have been funded before, how far back does that go?
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
01:22:37
Paula - sorry I don't actually know the answer to that question. My guess is that it would contain a past application if it was submitted within the past 2-3 years, but likely not further back from then.
Lucy Becker
01:22:39
My audio and video are not working.....it is Lucy Becker from DVCLS legal aid clinic - what happens if we are planning to conduct an environmental scan and summary of demographic information for individual neighborhoods and don't have specific demographic statistics. We hope to use any of this funding to do this type of work to focus on areas with low neighbourhood equity scores.
Paula Messina
01:23:17
ok thanks. I was assuming we would need to create a new profile...
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
01:23:25
Robin - hehttps://www.thetrusteehub.ca/about/trusteeshipre is a good resource to understand what a trustee is, as well as an example of an org that provides this service:
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
01:25:01
Lucy Becker - If you mention that in your application, that should be sufficient for the reviewers.
Kalyani Mathur
01:25:15
Hi, can we apply if we've received funding from Toronto Foundation before.
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
01:25:36
Kalyani - yes!
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
01:28:12
Apologies, my audio is giving me problems. Worth mentioning re: trustees, we're not seeking a letter of recommendation but a standard trustee agreement that states the nature of the relationship between the two organizations.
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
01:29:16
No receipts!
Mohamed Huque (he/him) - Toronto Foundation
