The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the importance of access to technology for all students. It is not simply nice-to-have; it is a basic need. To fully support a learner, technology must be accessible both in and out of the classroom.
In the Fall of 2021, together with EPCOR, the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation embarked on our first-ever Chromebooks for Kids campaign. Every dollar donated (up to $25,000) was matched by EPCOR’s Heart + Soul Fund. We are happy to report that, thanks to donations from our community, all $25,000 of EPCOR’s generous gift has been matched.
THANK YOU EPCOR!
And thank you to all of our supporters who have stepped up to gift our students with this much needed technology. We couldn’t have done it without you and are excited to announce that we reached our $100,000 goal for the 2021-22 School Year.
This need is ongoing and we are again embarking on a $100,000 campaign for the 2022-23 School Year. You can put a Chromebook in the hands of a deserving student - to keep - for a one-time donation of $300.
Please consider donating today!
