Effective September 1, 2021, each recipient receives $110 each month, from September through June, for a total of $1,100.

The Help Our Students Program is a not-for-profit organization, registered as a charity under the Income Tax Act (Canada).

100% of all donations are distributed to students who are selected by their school.  Your donations are never used to pay administrative costs which are paid by the volunteer Board of Directors.

Donors receive an annual President’s Report.  Each President’s Report contains a financial statement and a link to the recipients’ letters describing how the Help Our Students Program has impacted their lives.
