Impacting students now and in the future

There are rising expectations of public education to meet the demands of our ever-changing world. EducationMatters funds enhancement programs and student awards that are as diverse as the students themselves. Your donations help to enrich and enhance the experiences and learnings of Calgary’s public education students. We give priority to programs that are innovative, address critical needs, have system-wide potential and that REALLY do make a difference.
