Elmwood Fund

Rising to the Challenge

Never more than in the past few months, have Elmwood girls proven the adage that our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. Supported by the caring and committed community that surrounds them, propelled by their own curiosity and spirit, and inspired by those that came before them, they are poised to use their powers to make the world a better place. Despite the confines of a global pandemic, Elmwood girls are rising to the challenge.

“Elmwood in this new reality continues to thrive, and our mission to inspire girls to reach their full potential is alive and well. It’s what’s next that will strengthen Elmwood’s position as a nationally and internationally renowned school for girls. Global leadership in learning and teaching, lifelong mentorship, health and wellness, financial support for girls, and the Elmwood Endowment will all solidify Elmwood’s extraordinary future.”
                                                                                             James Whitehouse, Head of School

The 2020-21 Elmwood Fund will support:

  • Global leadership in Learning and Teaching – both in-person and online;

  • Lifelong Mentorship – A MentorHer Program building support for life;

  • Support for Girls – A robust scholarship program making an Elmwood education accessible to more girls who otherwise would not be able to afford it;

  • Health & Wellness – supporting the mental and physical well-being of students;

  • Elmwood Endowment – strengthening Elmwood’s future.

Your gift, regardless of size, makes a difference and supports all of our girls. Donations enhance the academic, co-curricular and athletic experiences which make Elmwood special, and sets the school apart.




At Elmwood, our girls understand the importance of giving back to their community.  Your gift re-affirms your belief in Elmwood’s mission: to inspire each girl to reach her full potential.  We invite you to follow in the footsteps of those who have demonstrated their belief in Elmwood, its mission and the promise of every Elmwood student.

Your gift will help Elmwood:

• Become a global leader in girls’ education and teaching excellence; 
• Be recognized as one of the most innovative girls’ schools in North America, and around the world;
• Surpass it’s standing as one of the top 25 private schools in Canada.

Your gift helps inspire each girl to reach her full potential. 

In return for your contribution, you will receive name recognition on Elmwood donor listings, and a charitable tax receipt for your support. 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, 2021.
