About the Taylor Toller Memorial Fund

The Taylor Toller Memorial Fund was established in memory of Taylor Toller, whose life was tragically cut short by an act of family violence on July 26, 2018. This fund, which is run through The Calgary Foundation,  stands as a beacon of hope and resilience in her honour. It is a donor-advised permanent endowment fund crafted to ensure Taylor's legacy endures through meaningful action and support.

Each year, the fund allocates a portion of its market value—determined by a carefully considered percentage—to support charitable initiatives, with a particular focus on combating Family Violence and battling Addictions. This strategic approach ensures that every donation made to the fund, no matter the size, multiplies over time, transforming even a modest contribution of $100 into a lasting impact that will continue to grow and serve our community for generations to come.

The inception of the Taylor Toller Memorial Fund was a heartfelt decision by Taylor's family, driven by a desire to transform their profound loss into a catalyst for change. By directing resources to areas that honour Taylor's memory our hope is to make a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by family violence and addictions.

Trustees of the Fund:

  • Joanne Toller, Founder

  • Kennedy French-Toller

  • Ethan French-Toller


We are committed to creating a safer, more compassionate world through the Taylor Toller Memorial Fund. A world where the challenges of family violence and addictions are met with the combined strength of community support, strategic funding, and the enduring spirit of a life remembered.


Join us in this mission and see how your contribution can be part of a powerful legacy of hope and healing.
