Why We Exist
The Calgary Catholic Education Foundation was established by Catholic community members in 2009, including the late Lois Burke-Gaffney and Ted Valentine, in response to the need for external fundraising that fits within our Catholic faith values. Calgary Catholic schools do not receive any funding from charitable casino fundraisers.
Since 2009, The CCEF has awarded over $3 million in grants to the Calgary Catholic School District schools and classrooms in support of:
- Social Justice Actions
- Citizenship, Leadership and Stewardship Development
- Leading Edge Learning Opportunities
- Safe, Caring and Faith-Filled Schools
- Campus Calgary/Open Minds
