Funding Priorities

TFS is the school it is today because of the generous philanthropy of generations of TFS families. To this day, the support of our community remains vital in order for TFS to deliver on its mission to develop multilingual critical thinkers who celebrate difference, transcend borders and strive for the betterment of humankind.

Tuition fees only cover the school’s day-to-day operating expenses. It is through the generous gifts we receive each year that TFS is able to enrich the educational program, enhance facilities and provide life-changing scholarships. 

Our priorities for the 2020-21 school year are two-fold. First, our campus master plan continues to be a priority and an important part of the long-term vision for TFS. In addition, we are focused on addressing the immediate needs that are arising as a result of the pandemic. 
TFS estimates that the cost required to bring students safely back on campus will be more than $1,000,000, over and above regular operating expenses. We also know that now, more than ever, some TFS families will experience significant financial challenges, and support of our bursary program will help ensure their children can continue their studies at TFS.  

Together we are a strong and caring community, and every gift makes a difference.

Our funding priorities:

List of 4 items.

  • TFS Annual Priorities Fund

    Every year, families are asked to support the TFS Annual Priorities Fund and the gifts received are an important source of financial support for the school. They provide TFS with the ability to address immediate needs as they arise, invest in annual initiatives that have an immediate impact on our students’ day-to-day experience at TFS, and support the long-term vision of the school.
  • Entrance Scholarships

    The TFS Entrance Scholarship Program offers full-tuition scholarships to talented, high-achieving students entering Grade 7 or above, who could not otherwise afford to attend TFS. Our entrance scholars contribute their diverse perspectives to the student body, inspiring both their teachers and peers, while also enriching the educational experience for all.
  • Bursaries

    Bursaries provide short-term support to current families experiencing financial difficulties, so that their children can continue learning and growing at TFS. Families with a child graduating may wish to support this important program by making a gift to their Class Fund, a graduating class tradition that provides families with the opportunity to honour their child and the education they have received at TFS.
  • Campus Master Plan

    The investment in new purpose-built spaces and programs that nurture students’ international mindsets and inspire their sense of citizenship is important for the future of TFS, and the campus master plan will continue to be a priority as we strive to build the school of our dreams. We are inspired by those families who made early lead gifts; their commitment demonstrates their belief in the leadership at TFS and in the vision for our school. We welcome the community’s engagement and support.
