Where does TIF
get its funding?
The Toy Industry Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the North
American toy industry. We are directly affiliated with the Toy Industry
Association, the not-for-profit trade association for producers and
importers of toys and youth entertainment products sold in North
America. As a result, TIF receives partial funding from
TIA. The majority of our funding, however, comes from generous
donations from individuals and corporate contributions.
