Student Emergency Fund
The Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation provides immediate assistance to students in urgent crisis situations through the Student Emergency Fund.
About The Program
The objective of the Student Emergency Fund is to give immediate assistance to Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board students, and perhaps their families, by providing financial aid and/or gift-in-kind support.
This funding could be used to purchase items such as eyeglasses, EpiPens, medical supplies, food and clothing, transportation, to subsidize field trips, or to assist with additional financial needs that result from family crises (fire, flood, layoffs, illness, etc).
Len & Olive Black Memorial Fund
The Len & Olive Black Memorial Fund supports students facing financial hardship who:
1) Require assistance with purchasing materials and items to allow them to fully participate in courses, leveling the playing field for all students
2) Would like to pursue post secondary education and need assistance with the application fee.
Funds from the Len & Olive Black Memorial Fund are distributed through requests made to the Student Emergency Fund.
