With your support, we are looking to raise 1M during the 2018 campaign. This will add to the nearly 18M dollars which has been raised by The Foundation, through Toonies for Tummies, since 2000.
And thanks to the support of our sponsoring brands and retail partners, we're pleased to once again confirm that 100% of donations collected during the campaign will be donated back to student nutrition programs in the local communities where the funds are collected. Following the campaign close, we'll work with our student nutrition partners: Breakfast Club of Canada and Student Nutrition Ontario to help administer the funds and get as many children nourished as is possible in your local elementary and high-schools.
Below you will see below how the funds collected during the 2017 campaign (February, 2017) made its way back to Western Canada and Ontario:
Today, there are over 1.1M children who participate in student nutrition programs and who will benefit from your donations. We thank you in advance for any donations you make at participating retailers and online during the year.
You can track your donations via tooniesfortummies.ca by entering your postal code. While we do not name schools for privacy reasons, you will get a sense of local programs which stand to benefit from your generosity and support.
