Last week, METRAC was formally given a Vital Ideas award from Toronto Community Foundation’s Vital Toronto Fund. Ceremonies were held in CBC’s Glenn Gould Studio and METRAC’s Executive Director accepted the award on behalf of the organization.
Toronto Community Foundation connects philanthropy to community needs and opportunities and their vision is to “ensure the vitality of Toronto and make it the best place to live, work, learn and grow through the power of giving”. Many effective organizations were represented at the event, and it served as an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of dedicated community organizers.
