Chapter 3: Building Grassroots Support

 

The project's first funding came from the University of Winnipeg, to hire an education student as a Research Assistant and cover expenses for team meetings. 

 

ToyBox gained traction through community organizations, and in 2019 the Winnipeg Foundation generously funded the project.

 

By the fall of 2019, the ToyBox team had developed 90 fully researched activities: 30 in literacy, 30 in numeracy, and 30 in wellness.
