Frequently Asked Questions
At TVO, we believe in the importance of equitable education. Thanks to our donors, we can provide access to quality learning opportunities that empower Ontarians to pursue their goals and meaningfully contribute to their communities.
TVO helps you understand what’s happening across the province and around the world through our award-winning TVO Today current affairs journalism, documentaries, and podcasts that explore timely issues and solutions. We support young learners at home and at school through our fun Ontario-curriculum aligned TVO Learn resources for Kindergarten through Grade 12. We prepare children for school and life through our entertaining TVOkids learning experiences. And we offer a pathway for teenagers and adults to achieve personal and professional goals through TVO ILC, Ontario’s largest online high school. We do all of this by offering these resources on demand across all platforms-connecting with Ontarians wherever, whenever you need us most.
As a registered charity, TVO relies on the generosity of our donors to carry out this important work. Your donation today is an investment in the power of learning and the future of Ontario.
Your information security is our priority. That’s why TVO adheres to best practices in donation processing to ensure that your information is, and remains, safe and confidential.
All online forms that process your information are encrypted with the same advance standards used by governments, corporations, and organizations around the world. Our technology provider is independently audited and complies with PCI (Payment Card Industry) standards instituted by all major credit card brands. That means that your information receives the level of security that Visa, Mastercard, and American Express insist upon to process payments.
