Thanks to EPCOR for helping create a legacy of learning that has no boundaries, ensuring more children are given the gift of time and extra support so they can realize their full potential and contribute to building a better world.
EPCOR Puts their Heart + Soul into Public Education
In 2020, our Foundation not only celebrated its 10th Anniversary, we also celebrated our amazing 10-year partnership with EPCOR. Since day one, EPCOR has been a generous supporter of our cause and their staff regularly visit the Kindergarten classroom at Mee-Yah-Noh School to participate in reading and play-based activities with the students.
Since the 2010 launch of the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation, EPCOR has invested more than $220,000 to help get children ready for learning and ready for success!
This year, as part of their Heart + Soul Fund, EPCOR contributed an additional $25,000 to support our efforts to spread the word about the important work accomplished in full-day Kindergarten classrooms. This generous gift has enabled our Foundation to create a video to share our full-day Kindergarten story, provide a matching gift of $10,000 to leverage our end-of-year campaign, and engage them as the Presenting Sponsor for our 2021 Reading for Life Virtual Fundraiser.
“Our communities count on us to be there during difficult times — now more than ever,” says EPCOR CEO Stuart Lee. “One of the reasons we created the Heart + Soul Fund was to help organizations maximize their fundraising efforts. We at EPCOR are inspired by the Edmonton Public School Board’s tireless efforts to continue helping our community’s youth, at a time when they need help the most.”
