The Toskan Casale Foundation has been named Outstanding Philanthropic Foundation for 2008 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Greater Toronto Chapter.
AFP works to advance philanthropy through advocacy, research, education and certification programs and has been honouring leadership in philanthropy through its annual award program since 1995.
The Philanthropy Awards are an important way for AFP to recognize those individuals, corporations, foundations and groups who contribute their time and financial support to make our local, national and international communities stronger.
At the core of the Toskan Casale Foundation is a belief in the need to nurture compassionate communities. We are devoted to exploring unique avenues of support that will enable
local grassroots organizations to serve at-risk people in our communities. Our principal effort, the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative is a unique program in Compassion Education that is changing the world through the energy and empathy of young people.
The Toskan Casale Foundation, along with other award winners, will be honoured at a special Philanthropy Awards Luncheon on November 26th in conjunction with Congress 2008. To learn more, visit http://afptoronto.org/index.php/congress.
