Our Mission: To enrich educational opportunities and eliminate economic barriers to learning for students of the Halton District School Board (HDSB).
Our Vision: To ensure that all students of the HDSB have equal opportunities for participation, engagement and success.
The work HLF does in the HDSB community has a significant and lasting impact on the lives of others. In the spirit of caring, HLF’s work is guided by four key values:
- Accountability – we are transparent with our donors
- Compassion – we are motivated to help those in need
- Inclusivity – we care for each student while respecting their individual circumstances
- Integrity – we operate within a high moral code and exhibit honesty in our interactions
Since 2004, HLF has disbursed $2.3 million to help more than 12,000 students overcome financial barriers to their education, and $2 million in school grants to help engage students in learning.
