EducationMatters | Loonies for Literacy

Apr. 26, 2022

Text-to-donate is now live for EducationMatters’ Loonies for Literacy fundraising campaign.

Parents and community supporters can text LITERACY to 30333 and donate $5. To direct your donation to a specific school, simply text LITERACY followed by the school’s short code.

This system-wide fundraising event was initiated to help schools purchase the resources their students need most. Every dollar raised in-school will be matched up to $51k by community partners.

Funds raised throughout the campaign will be used for:

  • Books for school libraries
  • Digital resources such as reading apps and e-books
  • Early learning resources
  • Decodable texts

Parents and community supporters may also use a school’s Loonies for Literacy fundraising page – if the specific school you are looking for does not appear up under the search, please contact your Principal to see when their page will be launched. Your school may also be accepting cash and cheque donations, reach out to your school office to check.

Supporting literacy needs has never been so easy – please give today and help students all over the city close the COVID learning gap.
