More Ways to Donate

By donating to the Toronto Foundation for Student Success (TFSS), you will help to improve the lives of children. Every donation is appreciated and no donation is too small to have an impact. Together, we can make a difference.

The TFSS is an independent registered charitable organization dedicated to supporting Toronto District School Board (TDSB) children and helping remove barriers to their education. Our administration costs are less than 6% which allows us to invest a minimum of 94% of all funds raised in most programs and a full 100% in others.

Along with regular donations, you can donate in a number of additional and convenient ways detailed below:

Payroll Contributions

For as little as $1.00 per week, you’ll be making a huge difference in the lives of many wonderful children.
