Ontario Hubs – Driven by Donors

The Hubs are made possible by philanthropic gifts from the Barry and Laurie Green Family Charitable Trust, Goldie Feldman, and the generosity of thousands of TVO supporters.

In 2020, for the second time, TVO was grateful to the Barry and Laurie Green Family Charitable Trust, and Goldie Feldman, for their commitment to match all donations in support of Ontario Hubs up to $500,000. This gave the TVO philanthropy team the opportunity to implement an integrated, multi-platform fundraising campaign that resulted in TVO raising more than $550,000 from over 5,000 donors. Combined with the matching contribution from the Barry and Laurie Green Family Charitable Trust, and Goldie Feldman, that resulted in over $1 million raised for the Ontario Hubs initiative this year.

“The Ontario Hubs initiative has proven to be an effective platform that has allowed TVO to connect with many new voices across the province. Going forward, now more than ever, we need to be there for each other.”
