Georgian Giving

For decades, St. George’s School has been a leader in boys’ education. Through their loyalty and their donations of time and talent, generations of Old Boys have played an essential role in supporting the School’s mission of building fine young men, one boy at a time. This partnership, along with the generosity of our Alumni has allowed St. George’s to continually enhance the student experience and empower every boy to fully explore his unique passions and interests.

The Georgian Annual Appeal provides the opportunity for our Old Boys’ community to come together to participate in a long-standing tradition of ensuring future Georgians have access to the best educational and co-curricular resources possible on a daily basis. Boy-centred and innovative programming inside and outside the classroom allows our students’ eyes to be opened to the world of possibilities available to them today and in the future.

Through our financial aid programs, the School supports deserving and mission-appropriate students who otherwise might not be able to attend St. George’s because of their financial situation. The Endowment Fund provides student bursaries to remove those barriers for prospective families and furthers our commitment to diversity within our community.

Please consider giving back to the School that impacted your education, introduced you to new passions, connected you to a lifelong community, and influenced your own journey from graduation to the present day. A gift to the Georgian Annual Appeal or the Endowment Fund will have a profound and immediate impact on our students at both the Junior and Senior School campuses.

Every gift, no matter the amount, makes a difference.

  • What is the Georgian Endowment Fund?

    Think back to your time at St. George's and to your classmates. There were students in your grade that were very smart, some that excelled at sports, some were gifted in music or were artists, and others you loved for their personality and great humour. 
     
    St. George's is committed to maintaining the diversity of its student population. The long term goal for the School is to remove the financial barrier many families experience and to allow the best students, in many different facets, to attend the School. 
     
    Contributions to the Georgian Endowment Fund help the School financially support around 90 students a year and our goal is to continue to increase this number. Any donation, no matter the amount, makes a big difference as the dividends received from this Fund grow as the Fund grows. Please give today and allow a student, just like you were at one time, experience this amazing school and lifetime brotherhood.
