Toonie Tuesday is Tuesday, February 22, 2022!

Now, this is a real 2’s day! This year, we get to celebrate Toonie Tuesday on a date that drives home the idea of collecting toonies - 02.22.2022! 

It’s like it’s meant to be; so let’s make this our biggest year yet.

Last year, we acknowledged that the needs of students had increased due to the global COVID-19 Pandemic. The truth is, the need has increased even more! The Education Foundation of Ottawa works to reduce barriers to ensure ALL students can learn confidently, by providing appropriate access to food, clothing, school supplies, healthcare supports, and opportunities for learning and recreation.

Every child deserves to be successful. The challenges students face are most likely, and often, out of their control. Thanks to the Principals, Vice-Principals, and Social Workers that request support on their behalf, the Education Foundation of Ottawa is here to help.

Here are some ways you can take part in Toonie Tuesday:

  • Make a one-time or monthly donation to our Toonie Tuesday campaign online and receive your charitable tax receipt right away by email!
  • OCDSB staff - Payroll deduction is the easiest way to give back since it comes right off your paycheque and counts toward your annual charitable giving. All you have to do is fill out this secure JotForm that goes directly to the OCDSB Finance department. Just think, you can start making a difference today, even with contributing $2 (or more)/pay!
  • Are you, or do you know, a business owner who would like to participate? Maybe they have an item where they could contribute $2 from every sale to our 2022 Toonie Tuesday Campaign! Introduce us by putting us in touch with them!
  • Parents and guardians can donate easily through School Cash Online, or can send their child to school with $2 (or more) anytime between now and Toonie Tuesday. Please ensure the money is put into a plastic baggie for safe handling.

With almost 10,000 staff and over 75,000 students, imagine what we could do if everyone gave $2 (or more) this Toonie Tuesday! Help us say “YES” when we receive requests for support.
