Helping students in need to succeed in school.


1.     School identifies a student / family in need

  • Student Guardian Program funding supports:
    • Basic necessities (i.e. food and clothing)
    • School Experience (i.e. school trips, sports teams, OYAP)
  • Our intent is to help supplement funding already being offered by the school. Should this not be possible, please include details in the Application Form.

2.     School completes the Online Application

3.     Principal submits the Online Application

  • Only Online Application Forms will be accepted (Effective September 1, 2019).


  1. Receipt of Applications will be confirmed via email.
  2. Applications will be reviewed by HCCF’s Allocations Committee. Our goal is to have a response back to the school within one week.
  3. Applications for activities that have already happened are not eligible.
  4. Applicants will receive notification of either approval of request, or notice that the request was not approved, via email.
  5. If approved, a cheque requisition will be processed, the cheque will be made out to the school and then sent to the school via the interoffice mail system. We do not issue funds to individuals.
  6. Acceptance of the funds requires the school Principal to provide a Report Back Form to HCCF by the due date indicated (one month after approval is received). Please note that the Report Back Form must be successfully completed (plus copies of receipts) in order to be considered for future HCCF  funding.
  7. We ask that the family is made aware of the funding provided by HCCF and donors to HCCF, and request a testimonial through a brief note.
