Our transformational impact on children’s lives.
Every day, over 40,000 children in Ottawa go without. They go without the nutritious meals they need to focus in class. They go without the supplies they require to finish their schoolwork. They go without the chance to be involved in extracurricular activities that could broaden their horizons and lift their spirits.
Every year, you continue to change the lives of children living in poverty in Ottawa with your support of the Education Foundation of Ottawa.
Last year alone, your donations helped us provide 9,000 healthy snacks every week. Your donations put 1,200 backpacks into student hands, and gave encouragement to the thousands of children who need it most.
What we do at the Education Foundation of Ottawa is made possible by your generosity. Read our annual communication in the OCDSB Director’s Annual Report to the Community to discover more about the good work you’ve been a part of.
