About Us

About the Toronto Foundation for Student Success

Our mission is to remove barriers for children so that every child is nourished and able to learn. By providing food, medical care, emergency funds and after school programs for children in need, we help them succeed in school.

Founded in 1998, the Toronto Foundation for Student Success (TFSS) is a registered charity. The TFSS is an independent registered charitable organization dedicated to supporting Toronto District School Board (TDSB) children and helping remove barriers to their education.

We believe that if we improve the health and well-being of our children they will do better in school, and if they do better in school then they will have a better future: last year, with support from many wonderful partners, we invested more than 22 million dollars in that future.
