ABACUS, a collaborative initiative of Hamilton Community Foundation and The Fairmont Foundation, is a 10-year commitment to increasing the likelihood that young people facing multiple barriers graduate high school and access post-secondary, by focusing on the pivotal middle-school years.

Two new granting calls will open March 1, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. and close May 2, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. for programs that run in the 2022-23 school year. They reflect a deeper understanding of student populations who face barriers and the transition periods into and out of middle school.
