The Halton Learning Foundation raises funds to support the youth in our community who require assistance. The top five requests for emergency funding from our elementary and high schools received by the Halton Learning Foundation are food, winter clothing, bus passes , school supplies and needs related to family situations such as family break-up, homelessness and house fires. The foundation is also a critical source of funding for enriched learning opportunities for students, purchasing teaching resources and equipment for students, often with physical disabilities, allowing them to have experiences and learning opportunities not covered by our traditional learning programs. In addition, 18 Halton Learning Foundation Scholarships are awarded annually to support graduating students pursuing their goals at university. Supporting students and strengthening schools requires resources. To learn how you can contribute, visit: www.haltonlearningfoundation.ca
