With the support of the community across Toronto we can help our children get the ‘hand up’ they need.

Here is a list of fundraising suggestions:

  • Host a pancake breakfast
  • Artwork product sale
  • Car wash
  • Read-a-thon
  • Community game night
  • Plant sale (perfect for Spring!)
  • Organize a used book sale
  • Raffle
  • Talent show
  • Dress-down day at your workplace

Examples school based fundraising:

John Fisher P.S sold hand-made items, created by their students, at their winter concert.

Sir John Roberston JPS hosted a ‘pizza lunch top up’, where students paid to have a tasty pizza lunch and donated their extra change back to TFSS. A win-win for everyone!

Sir Oliver Mowat held a week of activities where students paid a small fee in order to participate. Some of these included: getting out of class early, taking shortcuts through the school, watching school teams play, and so on.

The TDSB SuperCouncil held an event called ‘CoffeeHaus’ at Riverdale C.I. where students paid a cover fee of $5.00 to enjoy an evening of live music and art created by their peers. The proceeds were donated to TFSS to help other students across our system.

We can help make your fundraiser a success by providing reading materials about our programs that can be displayed during your event. One of our staff would also be happy to come to your school to give a short presentation about how your contribution will benefit students across Toronto.
