Every student deserves an equal opportunity to learn.

Unfortunately, more than one in 10 students of the Halton District School Board come from low income households and communities and are at risk of being left behind in learning. We’re here to help.

Our Mission:

Every student deserves a chance.

Our Vision:

A collaborative foundation serving students in need.

Since 2004, HLF has disbursed close to $2.8 million to help close to 16,000 students overcome individual financial barriers to their education, and $2.9 million in school support to help engage students in learning.

Our Values:

  • Compassion: We show kindness and caring for students and families.
  • Respect: We treat everyone with dignity.
  • Integrity: Honesty, transparency and accountability are integral to everything we do.
  • Adaptability: Our work is guided by the evolving needs of our community.
