Types of Fundraising

Types of Fundraising

Fundraising encompasses a broad range of activities. Often this is a generic word that is used to describe charitable donations, grants, sponsorships, sale of products and services. Below are some of the activities that are part of fundraising.

Sale of Products

The most traditional form of fundraising is selling products that offer a financial return to the school community. Fundraising activities are successful when the product or service has real value to customers, is innovative and where the return on your investment of time and effort yields a good result.

To view Grant Opportunities, TDSB staff can visit the internal Business Development SharePoint site.

Donations (In-kind or Monetary)

Donations are gifts of resources or funds to support a specific activity. The TDSB issues charitable receipts or letters of acknowledgement for donations of $25 and over if they are paid by cheque or cash.

Donations are not tied to specific recognition, endorsement or other publicity, though it is good practice to thank donors, both privately and publicly for their support.

The TDSB Online Donations Module is now available. This application allows all TDSB schools to collect and track online donations. For on-line donations made through the School Cash Online website (, donors will receive a tax receipt for any donation amount via email - there is no minimum donation amount required. They can also retrieve and reprint tax receipts by logging onto the School Cash online website at

All TDSB schools now have access to the Online Donations Module. Please refer to the Online Donations Guide for step by step instructions. Please note that the online donations module is intended for TDSB internal fundraising purposes only and funds collected via this method are not intended for redistribution to other external charitable organizations. For assistance with the School Cash Online System, please contact your Finance Support Officer.


Business Development will support schools and school councils as they consider applying for grants and move through the application process. Grants are reviewed to ensure they align with TDSB policies and procedures.

To view Grant Opportunities, TDSB staff can visit the internal Business Development SharePoint site.
