A Dollar Can Go A Long Way!


In 1991, the Calgary Educational Partnerships Foundation (CEPF) was established as a registered not-for-profit organization to provide support for the students and teachers in Calgary and the surrounding area. Over the years, CEPF’s influence broadened – so much so that in 2016, during its 25th Anniversary year, the organization changed its name to The Educational Partnership Foundation (TEPF).

For 30 years, TEPF has been making a positive impact on the lives of students by playing a key role in creating relevant partnerships between the business community and educators to create and deliver strong educational initiatives that encourage engaged citizenship.

If you are passionate about education and the future of Alberta then please donate to the Educational Partnership Foundation. We reach over 740,000 students in Alberta by delivering literacy, book and trades programs.

REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS: As a registered Canadian Charity refunds or cancellations after receiving a taxable charitable receipt are not issued.

Our Partners

TEPF could not help as many students as it does without the continued support of our business partners. As a non-profit organization, TEPF prides itself on the strong relationships it develops with companies, organizations, and individuals, and serves as an essential link between their generosity and the students


Education opens your eyes to the world, both local and globally, and instills a desire for lifelong learning

James came to our school reading at a pre-primer level, meaning he was virtually a non-reader. After coming to our school he began to demonstrate reading growth, but it wasn’t until Reading…Give It A Shot that his skills really took off. He is a huge hockey fan, and was so excited to be collecting bookmarks that many nights he read for almost an hour.
