Why We Exist
EducationMatters is a charitable trust that funds innovative enhancement programs to help Calgary Board Of Education elementary and secondary students excel and enrich their learning experiences. We also manage and support student awards, scholarships and bursaries to help Calgary’s students achieve more.
We believe the best public education happens when the community participates in its development and that a strong public education system is the cornerstone of a healthy, vibrant community.
