This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

One City Scholarship Fund


The One City Scholarship Fund is an initiative by Toronto teachers to support remarkable students in their post-secondary studies. These students have excelled in spite of considerable obstacles created by poverty, marginalization, low expectations, and stigma. They have learned to develop a resilient, optimistic, spirit that allows their gifts to shine. This city needs these extraordinary young people to flourish. Together we can build a city that is less wasteful of talent, more inclusive, and better able to provide opportunities for young people who have already overcome so much. We think that there are more people in Toronto, like you, who agree. The One City Scholarship Fund is building an endowment that will provide substantial scholarships for up to four years of post-secondary study for high achieving students from poor backgrounds. When we reach across the barriers that divide us, we can become one city. For more information please visit www.onecityfund.com.
