Prominent Toronto philanthropist Peter Munk is making a $5-million pledge to the high-profile debates that bear the family name.

The pledge to the Munk Debates comes from the Aurea Foundation, which is part of the Peter and Melanie Munk Charitable Foundation and supports the development of public policy.

The nearly decade-old debates were established with an approximate $400,000 investment from the foundation to engage and inform Canadians, but Mr. Munk says they were also started as a way to define Toronto as a hub for intellectual discussion.
