As of Sept. 1, 2020, all monetary donations are processed through, EducationMatters, CBE's Trust and Foundation.
Anyone can make a donation to a specific school, project at a school or CBE system initiative through the EducationMatters online donation tool. It's so easy!
EducationMatters is a registered charity. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more.
Online donations are the preferred method for donations of $500 or less. Cheques can be made out to EducationMatters and mailed to: EducationMatters, 1221 8 Street SW Calgary, AB T2R 0L4
If you're making a donation of more than $500 please contanct EducationMatters.
Like all charities, EducationMatters charges an administration fee of 3.5 per cent on the total amount of the donation being processed. This fee helps to cover the cost of processing the donation and overhead costs that they incur in order to do that work. We recognize this is a change as CBE did not charge a fee. However, there was a cost that had to be absorbed and as resources in the system are reduced we are changing how we work in order to create efficiencies, while continuing to provide schools and students with the services they need.
In-kind Donations of Equipment & Supplies
We are always happy to receive donations and we are grateful for the generosity of our community.
We welcome donations of items such as school supplies or equipment.
For school supplies such as stationery and binders, it is best to contact an individual school directly, as each school manages their own inventory levels. Locate a school in our Find a School tool or for a list of schools and their contact information, use our School Directory.
Given the ever-changing needs of our school system, sometimes we need different supplies or items at different times.
Please fill out the form below with the details of your donation, and we will let you know if we can accept your donation at this time.
