York Rectors Fund


A board of three commissioners, delegated by the Incorporated Synod of the Diocese of Toronto, apportions the surplus income derived from the First York Rectory Endowment to special projects by rectors within specific geographic borders, that is, Steeles Ave on the north; Humber River to the west; Lake Ontario to the south; and Victoria Park Ave to the east. Rectors within these established boundaries are invited to submit applications.
