Merit deserving success
A mission to promote education!
Through its various perseverance programs, Educaid provides financial support to students from less privileged backgrounds, encouraging them to stay in school so they may one day pursue the career of their dreams and fulfill their goals. To put it in a nutshell, the key words are:
Five youth-centred objectives
- Recognize the merit and will-power of students living in difficult circumstances.
- Boost motivation and self-esteem.
- Acknowledge and encourage perseverance
- Reduce social and economic obstacles to help students graduate.
- Help students achieve their dreams.
Educaid is the philanthropic arm of Kaleido, an industry-leading brand in the field of education savings. The charity was founded back in 2002 by two of Kaleido’s senior executives who, perceiving the gross inequalities in access to education and academic achievement, decided to initiate a charitable project based on the following explicit principle: motivated students from less privileged backgrounds should not be penalized by limited financial means. All, without exception, must have the opportunity to pursue their education and achieve the success they deserve.
Educaid has granted over 3 million dollars in perseverance scholarships to more than 2500 students from 350 schools across Quebec.
*Educaid is a self-sufficient charity organization and is completely independent from Kaleido. The organization is funded solely by donations from private individuals or corporations, grants, partnerships, sponsorships and fundraisers.
