IODE Toronto Legacy
At the time of the IODE Toronto Municipal Chapter disbandment, the IODE Toronto Legacy Fund was established under IODE Ontario. The IODE Toronto Legacy Committee oversees all programs supported by this fund. The Committee is comprised of a minimum of five Toronto area members, the Toronto Area Vice President, the Provincial President, the Provincial Treasurer and the Provincial Education Officer.
Tine Stewart / W. Garfield Weston Foundation Bursary $20,000
Applications are received from high schools in the Toronto District School Board and are selected by the social worker or school guidance councillor working directly with the students. Each student finds themselves in difficult circumstances (family and living) but to their credit, they have devoted themselves to their studies and future post-secondary goals. The Toronto Legacy Award Committee will determine those receiving supported.
Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) Funding valued at $5,000
Through the generosity of the W. Garfield Weston Foundation, the IODE Toronto Legacy Committee is able to purchase TTC tickets for students under the jurisdiction of the Toronto District School Board. Guidance Counselors and /or Social Workers identify students unable to afford TTC tickets and by providing these funds, we are helping students attend school regularly and more effectively reach their goals.
