Open call for workshop presenters:

For 30 years the Foundation for Education has provided outstanding enrichment opportunities for local Huron and Perth students through a wide variety of arts and life skill-based workshops that demonstrate creativity, innovation, empowerment, equity and inclusion.

We’re searching for workshop leaders who can share learnings remotely via technology or those that would like to be considered for in-class activities.



AMDSB Helping Hands Fund: Financial insecurity is a daily reality for some Canadian families. An alarming 17 percent of children live in poverty. Students attend school with missed meals, inadequate clothing for the elements or the school supplies needed to go above and beyond their studies at home.

To help ensure our students have a barrier-free path to graduation, we have created the AMDSB Helping Hands Fund. Through this Fund, we will help our students attend school and achieve to the best of their ability.

As the donor to this fund you can select which AMDSB school that you wish to support. Click here to donate.

Now, through the newly formed Caring Fund, the Foundation has expanded its focus to build a Trust that provides support to students who lack access to basic necessities. In the midst of a world-wide pandemic, local educators and support staff are managing unprecedented demands as they work to meet the needs of the curriculum while juggling food insecurity and student well-being on a reduced budget.   These folks need our help.

No Show Gala:
For over 25 years we hosted a live gala in Stratford that supported enrichments programs in the schools. This year, we have decided to host the No Show Gala. Proceeds from this event will contribute to the Foundation’s Learning Enhancement Fund. Through this fund we will continue to offer small project grants and grants for the Silver Birch and Red Maple Reading programmes in addition to new opportunities for teachers to request funding up to $250 per year for in-class activities such as Arts & Culture, Environmental Action, and Indigenous or Racial Relations. Going forward, we’ll continue to innovate, creating new opportunities to support youth through critical enrichment programmes.
