As a community Jewish day school, we attract families from across the Jewish spectrum and are proud of our geographic, socioeconomic and cultural diversity. At VTT, we endeavour to make Jewish education accessible to all our families. For those families requiring more assistance than is available through ADP (Affordability Discount Program), our TAC program provides larger assistance awards for families that qualify. Each application submitted through FAST receives individual consideration and, while no guarantees are made, every effort is expended to understand the specific needs and circumstances of each family’s application.
The TAC fund is in large part possible due to the generous support from individual donors and community organizations. We are particularly grateful to the Diamond Foundation for meeting the urgent financial needs of some of our families as a consequence of the impact of COVID-19. Their $130K grant allowed several families to continue to enroll their children at VTT for the 2020-21 school year.
VTT relies on donations and community funds to support our TAC program. As financial sustainability is one of our core pillars, we rely on our families to make reasonable lifestyle sacrifices to ensure we can support as many families as possible while being accountable to our funders.
