We Care Challenge!

For it is in giving that we receive…St. Francis of Assisi

Dear Staff of Edmonton Catholic Schools,

Each fall, many of our schools and our staff participate in the We Care Challenge.  This outstanding endeavor raises significant funds for two Catholic organizations, the Edmonton Catholic Schools Foundation’s Dreams for Kids campaign and Catholic Social Services’ Sign of Hope campaign, that have tremendous impact on our ECSD community and beyond. 

Our We Care Challenge provides schools and sites the opportunity to join to fundraise so that their collective impact is great. Through this giving program, we support organizations that change lives.  You may choose to direct your dollars towards one or both of these worthwhile causes as part of the We Care Challenge.

Each of these organizations has sent a letter to provide you with information about their valuable work, which I have attached for your convenience.

Edmonton Catholic Schools will, once again, offer our staff the convenience of automatic payroll deduction as part of the We Care Staff Payroll Giving Program.  Simply visit to make a payroll donation.  You may choose to donate to one or both charities in this way.  The deductions will run from January to December 2019.  You may also make a one-time donation.  If you participated in our payroll giving program last year, please consider renewing your commitment once again.

Thank you for your continued commitment to bearing witness that We Care in Edmonton Catholic Schools!
