Capital Campaign Contributors

Fifty Overs Donors

($50,000 donations and higher)

Ontario Trillium Foundation

Ontario Trillium Foundation

This $500,000 OTF Community Capital Fund grant awarded in late August 2011 matched capital funds raised by Go Green and quite literally “made our project happen.” The CCF fund grants were initiated to support infrastructure projects that helped Ontario’s not-for-profit organizations deliver important public services to diverse cultural communities. It was received on Go Green’s behalf by one of its two grant “collaborative community partners”, Flemingdon Neighbourhood Services. In December 2014, FNS merged with Go Green’s other collaborative community partner Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office. From time to time, TNO offers trustee services to Go Green on certain community grant applications and most recently, partnered in 2015 to launch the TNO Go Green Cricket and Multisport Summer Camp 2015.

OntarioCanada 150 Community Infrastructure Program

In August 2015, Don Valley West MP John Carmichael announced the Go Green project was selected from among 1100 applicants to receive $258,301 in funding from the federal government to install its LED sports lighting and LED scoreboard making Go Green Canada’s first illuminated cricket field and Canada’s first sports field lit by LED’s. The purchase of the lights and poles are thanks to contributions from Jays Care Foundation and the Pakistan Consulate.

JaysCareFoundation_PRIMARYJays Care Foundation

Go Green is grateful to Jays Care Foundation for providing $150,000 in funding towards the successful completion of and construction of a baseball backstop and the purchase of our LED sports lights. Jays Care also contributed funding towards two cricket practice cages, which will be installed this spring 2016.

RBC Foundation

RBC Foundation awarded Go Green a $75,000 grant in June 2011 towards construction of its multi-sport cricket field. In May 2012 it also contributed $10,000 to celebrate its award at the Toronto Cricket Club by solely sponsoring a community festival and special cricket match between the RBC Corporate Team vs. a Go Green Youth All-Star team.


On January 2, 2011 the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation became Go Green’s first donor by contributing $50,000 towards its indigenous urban forest. Following this donation, TD Insurance also contributed an additional $16,250 towards the ecological aspects of Go Green’s Phase One construction project. Go Green is grateful to TD Bank, Live Green Toronto and Ontario Trillium Foundation for providing the catalyst to get the Go Green project going.

Kiwanis Club

Funding provided by Kiwanis Clubs of East York & Toronto

At the suggestion in the spring of 2012 of former Ward 26 City of Toronto Councillor John Parker, generous members of the Kiwanis Club of East York donated through the Club and personal contributions more than $20,000 to the Go Green Phase One project. KCEY later joined forces with the Kiwanis Club of Toronto Foundation and the Kiwanis Club of North York to collectively contribute more than $50,000 towards the “Kiwanis Amphitheatre” on the Go Green site. This reflects the Kiwanis Motto  “WE BUILD” – better communities, relationships with youth, much needed programs for children, and, in so doing, we inevitably better ourselves.

PrintMLSE Foundation

MLSE donated $272,000 towards the 2015 construction of an innovative multi-sport court in the VPMS backyard, a hoped-for addition to Go Green’s Phase One capital campaign. The addition raised the value of the Phase One construction project to $1.55 million. Completed in June 2015, the project also included a multi-sport cricket field, amphitheatre, baseball backstop, indigenous forest, butterfly meadow, bioswale and wetland.

Live Green Toronto Capital Projects Fund

In May 2011, Go Green was the successful recipient of $225,000 in funding which supported the underground and surface storm water management aspects of its cricket field, as well as funding construction of the bioswale. It received this funding because of the project’s environmental benefits including a reduction in greenhouse gases, an improvement in air and water quality, and assistance in managing the negative effects of climate change. We also met the City objectives as a grassroots community-based and Newcomer initiative which fosters long-term behavioural change and serves as a role model for other communities to follow.

greenwinGreenwin Inc.

Greenwin has been a loyal capital and program sponsor since the project’s inception as sponsor of all of our events, a significant contributor to our capital campaigns and the major sponsor of Go Green’s 2015 Over 19 and Under 17 Toronto & District Cricket Association League teams. Its sponsorship reflects Greenwin’s desire to not just provide homes, but to create healthy, dynamic communities. Greenwin’s long-time sponsorship of Go Green is particularly generous and exemplary because it does not currently own or manage properties in Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park.

TF-Stacked-notag_0Toronto Foundation

Funding provided by J. Douglas Crashley Fund

Go Green was the fortunate recipient of a $70,000 award from the J. Douglas Crashley Fund which enabled it to complete the construction of its wetland and butterfly meadow in 2015. Since then, hundreds of Valley Park Middle School and Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute students have enjoyed countless hours with staff at the bioswale and wetland area which serves as an outdoor living classroom for math, science, art and other programs.

GOPConsulate General of Pakistan - Toronto

In 2014, former Pakistan Consul General Toronto Nafees Zakaria announced $50,000 in funding also supported by contribumember of the Pakistani business community towards the purchase of Go Green’s LED sports lights. Since then, Consul General, Toronto Asghar Ali Golo is also a loyal fan recently hosting the August 14 2015 Pakistan Day celebrations and the Go Green field.

Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund

In August 2013, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment’s GLGCF provided $25,000 in funding to the Go Green bioswale and wetland plantings. This is because Go Green’s storm water management system aimed at connecting the site to the adjacent Don River watershed met two of the GLGCF’s main goals: to protect water quality for human and ecological health and to protect habitats and species.

City of Toronto - Community Recreation Investment Funding

In 2012, Go Green received $25,000 in funding from Community Recreation which financed the start-up of its cricket program because it met the City’s goals to a) increase participation in recreation, b) engage diverse residents reflective of their neighbourhoods, c) build skills, and d) use recreation as a tool to develop the physical and social health of Toronto's residents.

Park Property Management Inc.

In 2014, Park Property Management generously provided $20,000 to the Go Green Phase One project enabling it to complete the full appointment of its multisport court. The Park Property property management portfolio includes 8128 apartments and rental residences in 69 buildings located across the Greater Toronto Area and in other cities including Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, Stratford, Tillsonburg and Guelph. In Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park, it manages apartments at 2&4 Milepost, 52, 54, 56 and 58 Thorncliffe Park Drive.

Live Green Toronto Community Program for Storm Water Management (CPSWM)

In the spring of 2010, Go Green received $25,000 from Live Green’s CPSWM for the design of its storm water management system which diverts and discharges the sports field’s underground and surface run-off to a demonstration bioswale and wetland. This goal of “going with the flow” and tying the project’s goals with the VPMS Ecoschools and science curriculum was consistent with CPSWM’s goal of providing grants to community organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that carried out projects that advanced the goals and objectives of the City’s and TRCA’s Wet Weather Flow Master Plan (WWFMP).

International Development & Relief Foundation

In July 2012, IDRF provided Go Green with $20,000 in proceeds as the exclusive recipient of IDRF’s annual golf tournament held at Maple Downs. IDRF is a Canadian registered charitable organization dedicated to empowering the disadvantaged people of the world. IDRF provides effective humanitarian aid and sustainable development programs, without discrimination, based on the Islamic principles of self-reliance, social justice and human dignity.”

The IST generously contributed $15,000 to the Phase One construction project and as the largest mosque serving the Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park communities also provided enthusiastic assistance by supporting a neighbourhood-wide canvass of residential apartments and often distributing Go Green program flyers and marketing material to IST members.

Aga Khan Youth & Sports Board for Ontario

In April 2014, Go Green was extremely grateful to the AKYSB & some of its community members for making it the sole recipient of the AKYSB’s first annual gala which celebrated a community and youth cricket tournament providing it with $10,000 towards its LED sports lights campaign.

AquariansThe Aquarians

Responding to a 2012 Globe & Mail article, a group of Etobicoke, Ont-based philanthropists and friends made Go Green the sole charitable recipient to its annual swim-a-thon and contributed slightly more than $13,000.

MDC PartnersMDC Partners Inc.

Go Green was grateful to MDC Partners for a generous $10,000 donation towards its Let There Be Lights campaign. This commitment reflects MDC’s belief that it must power "society’s future by investing in the lives of young people around the world. At a corporate, agency and personal level, MDC contributes time, talent and treasure to advancing causes in the areas of creative entrepreneurship, education and health care".
