Jo’s TIME™ Fund is to help individuals in financial need to participate in a TIME™ program by fully or partially subsidizing his/her:

  • TIME™ program registration fees to a maximum of $120 per participant
  • Transportation costs to attend TIME™ programs: city transit and/or transit service for those with reduced mobility, (e.g., Wheel Trans, Handi-Transit, Para-Trans, i-Ride etc.) or taxi to a maximum of $150 over the span of one session/semester of TIME™ classes
Jo’s TIME™ Fund is a small fund that relies solely on personal donations. Thus, while we will do our best to reimburse fully, the Fund reserves the right to prorate the subsidy amount depending on capacity and demand for the Fund.
