Our annual campaign raises money for a particular cause. This year our focus was tuition assistance; making access to a Jewish education possible for all community children.
Area of Greatest Need
Gifts donated to this fund are unrestricted and will be used where the need is greatest.
Thanks to the extraordinary support and leadership of Gordon and Leslie Diamond Family, and the generosity of other donors, VTT has an exceptional facility purpose built for 21st century learning. We are continue to collect funds because money is needed to pay bills, without it VTT will be forced to pay large amounts in annual interest.
The Family Fund allows our less fortunate families to fully participate in school life and Jewish traditions by providing necessities such as uniforms, school supplies, winter attire, medical assistance, hot lunch and monthly Shabbat dinners.
Gifts made to the VTT Learning Commons aid in acquiring a variety of new library resources for our students, while also supporting innovative initiatives occurring in Makerspace.
Mitzvah of Valuing Philanthropy
Each year the grade 7 students fundraise for their chosen mitzvah and select an agency that they wish to support. The majority of fundraising comes from students themselves, but they are also encouraged to fundraise through family and friends.
Each year our grade 7 students go on a field trip to Strathcona Provincial Park, an outdoor learning centre where they are taught self-awareness, leadership skills and confidence. Donations to this fund help cover the cost of the programme.
The Parent Action Chavurah (PAC) mission is to enhance the overall VTT community. They work closely with VTT leadership team to provide opportunities for families to connect outside of school hours.
