Who We Support

Learn More >

One in five children in our schools live in poverty. That’s approximately 15,000 Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) students. This is why the Education Foundation of Ottawa exists to support students in our Board who are vulnerable to the effects of poverty. An independent charitable arm of the OCDSB, it is our mission to help our students as soon as their need becomes apparent.
