School Initiatives

The Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation (Foundation) is proud to present an interesting and interactive way to teach youth about the importance and practical nature of philanthropy.

The Community Initiatives Team at the Foundation have developed a presentation where they visit your school and teach students about philanthropy - empowering them to create their own fundraising initiatives and engage the community in raising funds for the Stollery Children's Hospital. The students then realize the impact they can have on other children and youth in their community.

Students learn how philanthropy requires action to be effective, and that awareness is only one component of being engaged in their community. They learn what giving is, what giving with a purpose means, and how to fund raise. Young learners are encouraged to create presentations to give to the school, parent council, and community partners, to demonstrate their passion in the importance of having a children's hospital and the necessity of funding from the community.
