Supporting equity through opportunity.
Within Halton, there is economic diversity from community to community. Some school communities and parent councils have a harder time than others raising funds to assist with additional purchases above and beyond core education funding.
School grants available through the Halton Learning Foundation enable schools in the Halton District School Board to purchase needed resources and fund educational programs and experiences. This ensures all students have equitable opportunities to develop critical 21st century skills. Annually, HLF supports about 100 programs in schools across Halton in the following key areas:
Learning & Achievement
Equity & Inclusion
Mental Health & Wellbeing
Grant applications for the 2023-2024 school year now closed.
More than 120 projects totalling over $125,000 were submitted by HDSB schools in 2023 to help strengthen school communities. HLF is grateful to schools and donors for their commitment to support equity and opportunity.
Applications for the 2024-2025 school year will be available in November 2024.
