The Shaping Lives Fund is WPGA’s annual gift fund. The goal of the Shaping Lives Fund is to raise unrestricted funding for maximum flexibility in funding opportunities, including program enhancements and facility improvements, that immediately benefit the student experience. The goal of the Shaping Lives Fund is 100% family participation. All gifts, regardless of amount, are valued and will shape the lives of our students and our future.

Thank you for supporting West Point Grey Academy's Shaping Lives Fund. 
Shaping Lives is exactly that: the opportunity to make a meaningful difference. Monies raised help all students at WPGA. And with the guidance of some tremendously caring and talented educators, they can be exposed to the experiences and learning that will help shape who they become.
