Background: Ron V. Joyce is best known as the legendary Canadian behind the incredible success of the Tim Hortons franchise. He stood with a strong work ethic and business acumen, and his passion for the Tim Hortons empire and helping young Canadians succeed was palpable. He passed away in 2019 but his legacy will live on through the thousands of young people he employed and supports in their post-secondary dreams through his Foundation. The Joyce Family Foundation is a private, family foundation created by Ronald V. Joyce (1930-2019). His philanthropy reflects a deep-rooted sense of responsibility to give back to his community. The Trustees carry out Mr. Joyce's vision in his memory. Through its strategic philanthropic work, the Joyce Family Foundation seeks to build a legacy for the future through ongoing leadership and innovative partnerships, by promoting improved and meaningful social, economic and emotional engagement for young Canadians. The Foundation is dedicated to supporting these young Canadians and empowering them to develop into healthy, confident, and independent contributors to Canada's society. In July of 2020, the Joyce Family Foundation decided to provide an extraordinarily generous gift in support of students entering the University of Prince Edward Island. The intent of the Foundation is to provide a transformational opportunity to students that face significant financial barriers and have demonstrated the ability to overcome obstacles and adversity.
