Welcome !

The Upper Canada District School Board’s Champions for Kids Foundation seeks to level the “playing field” for students in Eastern Ontario. In an era where many families struggle to meet basic needs, Champions for Kids supports students by helping them take part in sporting activities, music lessons or other opportunities in our communities. For many students, this is a chance to experience a little joy and hope in an otherwise challenging world. The Foundation also supports families when they face challenging circumstances. Whether facing a serious illness, fire or some other significant need, Champions for Kids comes alongside to support families during these difficult times.

The Upper Canada District School Board’s foundation, Champions For Kids, was born in 2008. Since its inception, the foundation has raised over $1.75 million for students and families in need. This not-for-profit organization’s mission is to secure resources to support students so that they need to thrive beyond school walls. Champions For Kids connects with students to fulfil dreams by exploring extracurricular opportunities and also supports students and families to pay for medical-related costs. Champions For Kids offers families in need a helping hand when life becomes challenging due to unforeseen circumstances. The foundation connects schools in the Upper Canada District School Board to the community and offers opportunities to help “level the playing field” for our students. Our success can be attributed to the generous donations and volunteer work from our community partners and employees of the Upper Canada District School Board. As a proud member of the Champions For Kids Executive, I encourage you to reach out to our foundation to see how you can be a champion for kids.


Casey Nelson, President
