Fundraisers & Donations

The Friends of Hidden Valley School focus on fundraising initiatives in order to enhance the educational experiences for Hidden Valley School students.  Support of parents, either through participating in our parent society meetings, planning and events, or through contributions to the fundraising efforts, is greatly appreciated.  Your time is valued, whether you can attend a single meeting, offer an hour to organize or set-up an event, or help coordinate fundraising; no contribution is too small!

Fundraising supports areas such as:

  • COVID-19 safety supplies
  • Kananaskis in the classroom
  • Artists in Residence
  • Field trips (ex. Bussing for Swimming)
  • Fine arts performances
  • Sports equipment and music instruments
  • Dances and family activities
  • Technology (iPad, smartboards, headphones, etc.)
  • And more!!

Check out this year’s fundraising campaigns that will support Hidden Valley School. These campaigns are also published in the school newsletter monthly.

Annual Cheque Writing Campaign

HOW CAN YOU HELP? We know that fundraising initiatives can often feel like a huge burden. On average, a parent donates approximately $120 per year through fundraising campaigns. This year the school council is initiating an annual cheque writing campaign to families as an alternative way of participating in our fundraising campaigns throughout the year.

HOW TO DONATE? Students will be sent home with a “Care for our Hare’s” donation form. If your family would like to make a donation, please fill out the donation form and return it to your child’s teacher along with your donation.

IS MY DONATION ELIGIBLE FOR COMPANY MATCHING? Quite often, employers have a Charitable Donations Matching Program in which an employee can fill out a charitable matching application form through their company. The employer will then match the amount of donation you have contributed. Please check with your employer to see if your contribution qualifies!

Cash or cheques will be accepted. Please make cheques payable to “Calgary Board of Education” as well as indicate whether you would like a tax receipt. Otherwise, feel free to just send donations with your child’s name and room number on it in an envelope marked “Hidden Valley School Donation”.

*A tax receipt will be provided for all monetary gifts over $25.00.

Cobs Bread

local Cobs Bread store located in Country Hills collaborates with Hidden Valley School for fundraising throughout the year. Just mention you’d like to support Hidden Valley School and 5% of your purchase will be donating back to the school. We also run a special annual campaign during the month of April for Hot Cross Buns. School council also receives $2 from the sale of each bag of hot cross buns sold during the Easter hot cross bun fundraiser as well as 5% back from the total order amount.
