News Release


Mar 05, 2018

It’s hard to fathom that some children in Niagara come to school on empty stomachs, poorly clothed or without proper footwear. It’s difficult to believe that some students do not have the $35 needed to attend educational field trips with their classmates or apply for post-secondary education. When students face such hardship, they face barriers to learning. Unfortunately, this is the reality for many students.

Your support changes children's lives.

The Education Foundation of Niagara’s Make Change for Children Campaign raises funds for basic student necessities. Your gift provides nutritious food, clothing, field trip access and other essentials that students would otherwise go without. 

100% of funds raised help DSBN students!

You can be involved!

As a school – involve your students in a fundraising event.  Maybe a little competition between classes or a contest that involves the principal or staff!  See what Prince of Wales St. Catharines did!

As an individual – hold your own fundraising event or make a donation online through our website at

Be the change in a child's future today!

*The Education Foundation of Niagara is a registered charity that helps students throughout the District School Board of Niagara
