Give every child a chance to shine.

Your donation lifts an Ottawa student up — closer to a brighter future.



In some Ottawa neighbourhoods, up to 40% of children start school without a proper foundation for learning.*

Your support can change that. When you donate to the Education Foundation of Ottawa, you help ensure that every child’s critical needs are met.

Through warm clothing, nutritious meals, and access to opportunities, vulnerable students get the essentials they need to learn, grow, and create a brighter future.

A little lift can make a big difference.

The LIFT campaign is an initiative of the Education Foundation of Ottawa. LIFT helps students rise above their challenges and gives them the boost they need to access the opportunities that all children deserve.

Join the elevation!
