A vibrant culture of giving

St. George’s is an incredible community – caring, generous, and dedicated to strengthening the world-class programs, facilities, and experiences that we offer our students.

Parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, and partners of the School support us through gifts of time, money, and expertise–and our boys are the beneficiaries. Together, we share a belief in the value of a St. George’s education, and we are investing in the future of every boy.

A transformational time for St. George’s School

An extraordinary new Senior School Campus is taking shape at the corner of Camosun Street and West 29th Avenue — purpose-built based on years of research into how boys learn best.

Educators and parents alike know that no two boys are the same, and no two boys learn in the same way. This new campus and specialized facilities will allow each St. George’s student to learn in the way that is best for him through innovative, hands-on, and flexible boy-centred education.

The response and support from our community has been powerfully affirming. With a projected completion date of the 2023-24 school year, this is the most ambitious project the School has ever undertaken. We still need your help to reach our goals and ask all families to consider a contribution to the ONE+ Campaign. This vision for the future can only come to fruition with the support of our whole community.

At the center of everything we do, you'll find a boy.

At St. George’s, we’re dedicated to meeting each boy’s needs and guiding him as he grows to become a fine young man. It’s what we think about every day — and most nights.

Each school year, we build on the innovation of previous years. The 2021-22 school year is no different. The last two years have required that we adapt and innovate our established practices. Now, we’re ready for new opportunities to improve.

This perspective has helped us refocus on an essential truth: It’s all about the boys. We’ve always known it, but it’s good to be reminded. It’s about how boys learn and how they interact. It’s about their ability to move and to play sports, to create, to act on a stage, and to make friendships that will outlive their time at the School.

Thank you for all the donations you have made over the years, and welcome, if this is your first gift to the Annual Fund.

Endowment Giving: Investing in the future

How do we make sure that a St. George’s education is within reach for a diverse group of boys? Endowment giving ensures our doors are open to qualified candidates. Through financial aid, scholarships, and bursaries, we are able to make what may have seemed impossible, a reality.

We strive to grow our Endowment Funds strategically over the long term and have enjoyed success in recent years thanks to the support of our generous endowment donors. The School's general endowment consists of a number of invested funds that operate in perpetuity. The preservation of capital in our endowed funds is the responsibility of the St. George's School Foundation Trustees. The returns generated by these funds are disbursed primarily in support of financial aid for deserving boys, as well as to support a variety of programs at the School.

A diverse student population makes the School a better place for all of us.
