What is the Shaping Lives Fund?
Ways to Give
The Shaping Lives Fund is the key to unlocking your child’s greatest potential at WPGA. Your contributions benefit every area, grade and program at WPGA, impacting your child’s learning today and building their futures tomorrow through purpose-driven donations, allocated that same school year.
How Does Annual Giving Work?
The Shaping Lives Fund is open to donations all year, although we request donations in the fall and end of school year for maximum funding flexibility. We ask all WPGA families to contribute in a way that is meaningful and sustainable. More than a target amount, we aim for 100% family participation. All donations, regardless of amount, make a difference and help to shape our students’ futures.
A separate philanthropic request is made in the spring for our annual Parent Volunteer Group fundraiser, which often supports a specific school project.
- Monthly Gifts: Your monthly commitment is the most effective way to support our students. On the donation form, please select "monthly gift."
- One Time Gifts: Donate by credit card or by cheque (payable to WPGA Foundation).
- Gifts of Securities/Stock: Donations of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) to a registered charity can turn a potential tax bill into a tax deduction. For more information, please contact the Advancement Office.
CRA Charitable Number: 855790887 RR 0001
Donor names (family, Foundation or individual) are recognized in our Annual Report
