The Elmwood Fund, the school’s annual giving campaign, is the primary vehicle for philanthropy at Elmwood. The Fund allows our parents, alumni and friends the opportunity to play a bigger role in the lives of Elmwood students, and make a lasting impact on the school. In addition, the sense of community is strengthened when everyone gives and feels invested in the school’s mission and strategic direction. Every donation, no matter the amount, makes a difference.
When you give annually, you're making a positive difference in the lives of Elmwood students — today, and in the future. Donations can be directed to a specific program, project or area that is important to you and your family. Gifts of all sizes are appreciated and make a difference to our girls’ experience. All donations are tax deductible and recognized in our annual supporters listing.
In the 2021-22 school year, the Elmwood Fund will be supporting the following priorities as laid out in the Elmwood Strategic Plan:
Your donation to the Elmwood Fund will make the Elmwood experience stronger and more accessible for exceptional girls to thrive in a rapidly changing global landscape. A particular focus is to attract deserving students of various backgrounds to join the Elmwood family to make our school more diverse, equitable and inclusive.
Physical and Mental Well-being
Your gift will provide resources to help students improve their physical and mental health through targeted programs. This will include expanding our athletics program, purchasing new equipment and engaging more trainers. Students will also be exposed to new learning strategies to better cope with stress, develop effective studying techniques and effectively maintain a healthy work-life balance – coupled with an active lifestyle – all skills they will use now and throughout their lives.
As determined by the Elmwood administration and faculty, and advised by the Board of Directors, the school’s top priorities will also be addressed through the support of the Elmwood Fund. One such priority is the construction of an outdoor classroom with amphitheatre seating to be used by Junior, Middle and Senior students.
Your gift helps us provide the expertise, resources, faculty and facilities to ensure each girl can realize her potential, reach her goals and make a positive contribution to her community. Thank you for supporting our girls by making a gift to the Elmwood Fund.
Donations are accepted by cheque, student account or credit card. For employees of the federal government participating in the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign, gifts to the United Way can be designated to Elmwood School. Pledges and payments can be made on or before June 30, 2022.
