Our Mission

The Tim Horton Children's Foundation is dedicated to fostering within our children the quest for a brighter future.

The Need

1 in 6 children across Canada and the United States live in economically disadvantaged homes1. For these children, opportunities and environments that promote their growth into healthy individuals are often limited.

A Foundation camp experience provides programs to help these children develop lifelong skills. When they return home, they bring with them a positive attitude about their future, and the confidence to achieve goals they learned to set for themselves.

Our Values

We are Child Centered
Our children and youth are at the centre of every decision we make. We are committed to ensuring their well-being and positive development.

We Model Excellence
We pursue excellence in everything we do. We are continuously improving to better serve our mission.

We Inspire
Our children, restaurant owners, staff and supporters grow through their relationships and achievements with us.

Our Purpose is Clear
We are intentional in every aspect of our programs. Our experiences are carefully designed to support children and youth in the achievement of our outcomes.

We Use Resources Wisely
We ensure our finances, people, facilities, supplies and equipment are used to their best advantage.

Our Camper Objectives

Foundation camp experiences are designed to help young people become responsible, caring and motivated individuals. Our campers return home more likely to:

  • Make positive decisions and take responsibility for their actions
  • Show respect for themselves, others and the environment
  • Contribute to their families, schools and communities
  • Build healthy relationships and demonstrate empathy
  • Try new things, take on challenges and bounce back from adversity
  • Be confident in their ability to shape their own futures

Funding

Funding for our Foundation comes primarily from donations made by Tim Hortons restaurant owners, Tim Hortons Inc., many valued suppliers, individual donors, and public donations collected year-round in coin boxes in each Tim Hortons restaurant.

Camp Day
Our largest single fundraising initiative is Camp Day, a 24-hour period when restaurant owners donate the proceeds of all coffee sales and public donations to the Foundation.

Unsolicited donations
Please be advised that the Tim Horton Children's Foundation does NOT solicit donations door-to-door. If you are approached by anyone claiming to be collecting for the Tim Horton Children's Foundation, please decline and notify the police.
