Financial & Basic Needs

Calgary’s diversity is one of its greatest strengths unless we are talking about socioeconomic diversity.  Like all large cities, there is a wide spectrum of affluence and a significant number of students whose education is negatively impacted by financial constraints.

Thanks to EducationMatters donors, we have been able to support breakfast programs, off-campus learning trips, and ensure that students are appropriately resourced to succeed in their education.  We strongly believe that every student should be provided with all the things that they need to succeed.  Helping to level the playing field by providing financial and basic assistance where it is needed is one of the ways that our donors are giving every student the chance to focus on their education and future.  Your investment can help remove barriers to student success and break the cycle of poverty in our city.
