The Halton Learning Foundation ensures that no student is left behind and is prepared for their future.
Supporting Halton District School Board students in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville, HLF provides emergency financial assistance for children and their families. HLF also offers a number of scholarships to help students make the most of their opportunities when graduate.
Throughout Halton, we also provide grants to schools to purchase equipment, support student mental health, and engage with the environment.
In the Halton District School Board, 1 in 10 students experience poverty.
Halton Learning Foundation provides support for students and families who need emergency help with food, clothing, hygiene basics, school supplies, field trips, and school teams. When we eliminate barriers to learning, students stay engaged in their education.
In the last school year, over 1,200 students receive emergency assistance, with educators reporting that support made an improvement in the ability of students to participate in learning.
HLF also oversees almost 70 awards and scholarships for graduating students to continue following their dreams at college and university.
