Founded in 1998, The Toronto Foundation for Student Success (TFSS) is the registered independent charity of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) created to ensure that all students are ready and able to learn in classrooms.
TFSS operates independently from the TDSB. However, thanks to support provided by the TDSB, there is no administration fee for funds donated to School-based Nutrition Programs and the Emergency Fund, enabling a full 100% of all donations to go directly to these programs. The overall administration cost for TFSS is less than 6%.
For over 15 years, TFSS has been building partnerships with the federal, provincial and municipal governments, the TDSB, concerned corporations and foundations, other NGOs, private individuals, families, and the many diverse communities within Toronto, to draw on the enthusiasm and expertise needed to execute its programs.
TFSS acts as an advocate for students, identifying and initiating programs to deal with the hunger, poverty and violence experienced by students and our programs have expanded over the years as the need has escalated.
In 1999, TFSS was providing 11,000 nourishing meals every day to children in need. Today, we support over 160,000 nutritious meals in over 600 schools.
