It's hard to believe that 1 in 5 children in Ottawa don't have the basic necessities they need to grow and succeed. The Catholic Education Foundation of Ottawa (CEFO) is a registered charity whose main focus is to raise funds to help alleviate poverty for students in the Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB). Join us in supporting those who need it most.
Our Emergency Response Fund provides immediate assistance to families within the Ottawa Catholic School Board who are experiencing a financial crisis. These families need help with basic needs such as food, clothing, and transportation. Some are facing unspeakable health challenges while trying to make ends meets.
We are helping school children every single day, in every school, beat the odds that are stacked against them.
