Who You've Helped

  • Every week we receive numerous requests from Principals and Vice-Principals requesting support for children in their schools. Imagine being hungry all day; concentrate on your schoolwork would not be your first priority. What about the stress on a parent who cannot pay for the medication their child needs? Or the student who does not have weather appropriate clothing and spends the day with wet feet in their shoes? Updated regularly, click here to get a true understanding of why the Education Foundation of Ottawa exists to ensure that every child has the opportunity to succeed.

Success for Every Child

Not every child is lucky enough to start their school day with the same foot forward as everyone else. Some are behind before they even step into the classroom. Often what’s missing is the most basic of things. We fill in the gaps of what’s not covered by the education system or social services to ensure that every child is equipped for success.
