Annual Giving

Elevate: Annual Giving is the foundation of all fundraising initiatives at St. John's School. These funds support, expand and strengthen our programmes, resources and facilities on an ongoing basis.

St. John's relies on the funds raised through Annual Giving to keep tuition fees reasonable, while still providing an exceptional education for our students.

Annual Giving participation and funds raised reached their highest levels yet last year. Just a few of the resources and programmes funded by Annual Giving included:

  • Classes and workshops with Olympian Jamie Broder
  • Installation of SMART Boards across the school
  • Speaker Series featuring Terry Small for teachers and parents
  • Artist in Residence programme
  • Student musical Avenue Q
Opportunities like these have a lasting impact on students and allow them to explore and develop skills and interests in new areas. 

Founders Circle

Donations of $1,500 or more annually are recognized by membership in our Founders Circle. Donors receive giving reports throughout the year and are honoured at the annual Founders Circle Reception. We welcomed more Founders Circle members than ever before in 2018-2019.

Be a leader in our community and participate in Annual Giving to help our students excel. Our participation goal is 100%. Every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference.
