About Us

The Halton Catholic Children’s Education Foundation (HCCEF) is an independent Charitable Organization, registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Through the compassion and generosity of donors, the Halton Catholic Children’s Education Foundation (HCCEF) is committed to enhancing the educational experience and enriching the lives of students within our Catholic school communities, by helping them with financial barriers to education.

On the recommendations of our Catholic school communities, the HCCEF Student Guardian Program provides financial assistance to students – to ensure that:

  • all are able to attend school with the basic necessities of life (i.e. food and clothing)
  • all are able to participate in all aspects of school life which are normally open to all students (i.e. school trips/experiences), and therefore, help them to succeed and achieve their full potential.

HCCEF Student Guardian Program

Students in need are supported by donations from our Board of Directors, individuals, school board staff, school fundraising activities and the business community to the HCCEF Student Guardian Program. Funds are also raised through the annual HCCEF Charity Golf Classic and the HCCEF Evening With Bishop Crosby events.

Your support of the goals of the Foundation is most appreciated.
