At WPGA, we aim to empower our students to become the best versions of themselves. We endeavour to provide an environment where a strong academic foundation is strengthened by our commitment to character building, global awareness, outdoor education, community service and student wellness. To achieve this, we must raise funds from our community.

At independent schools, tuition and government grants pay for staff compensation and operating costs only. WPGA, like other nonprofits, must fundraise to provide enriched programs, special teaching resources and facility improvements—all of which make our school an incredible place to learn.

The WPGA community has a strong culture of giving, notably through the annual Parent Volunteer Group Gala, the 2014–2015 We Live Here Campaign and the Shaping Lives Fund, our annual fund launched in October 2017. 

Donations from the Shaping Lives Fund are used that school year to support school priority needs. We encourage all members of our community to give to the Shaping Lives Fund each year in a way that is meaningful and sustainable. 

Giving to WPGA helps us fulfill our mission of Shaping Lives of Inquiry, Action and Joy. By giving to WPGA and our programs, we help shape the lives and futures of our students, to help them become future-focused leaders who embody our core values, including our Community Spirited value of serving others and giving back to our communities.
